The trade-off between the number of neurons that can be implemented with a single correlator and the shift invariance that each neuron has is investigated. A new type of correlator implemented with a planar hologram is described whose shift invariance can be controlled by setting the position of the hologram properly. The shift invariance and the capacity of correlators implemented with volume holograms is also investigated.
