A coupled-mode analysis of superimposed holographic transmission gratings in single-mode planar optical waveguides is presented. The diffraction characteristics are shown to be sensitive to the polarization of the incident wave, the angular separation of the output waves and the relative index modulation between the gratings. The coupling between gratings affects the diffraction efficiencies and decreases the angular and wavelength selectivities. Nevertheless, good channel separation and high fanout can be obtained together.<>
