In this paper, a simple scheme of two-stage free-space photonic swiching system for nonblocking optical interconnections has been investigated using holgorams. The multistage system requires a smaller number of interconnections for a given number of inpuut-output nonblocking ports than the single stage system does. Here hologram elements were used to change interconnection beam paths. In order to increase the idffraction efficiency of the hologram elements in photographic plates, a bleaching technique was used, which converts the amplitude hologram to the phase hologram. To show sthe feasibility of our optical interconnection system, it was implemented using the bleached hologram arrays and an LCTV spatial light modulator, and the sytem as a photonic switching system was demonstrated.
