Abstract

The concept of detour phase in computer-generated holography is generalized here to specify K-level phasetransmission functions that approximate optimized, periodic Fourier-transform-type carrier-frequency kinoforms. Combined with standard microlithographic techniques, this concept is shown to open up a possibility of generating (using K = 8) fully arbitrary space-invariant holographic interconnects characterized by negligible reconstruction error (<2%) and high diffraction efficiency (75–95%) into the desired pattern.
