Diffraction from multi-level phase holograms can be used to implement completely general free-space optical interconnect patterns. This paper provides a review of the basic forward problem of diffraction from a multi-level phase structure, the inverse problem of designing a computer-generated hologram to achieve a specific interconnect, and the issues involved in the performance analysis of these interconnect holograms.
