In this contribution, we present a highly flexible multiplexing method to optically induce multiperiodic photonic structures. We demonstrate this technique via introducing the representative induction of a photonic ratchet. To determine the excited refractive index landscape we implement digital holography methods, enabling us to locally analyze two-dimensional refractive index changes.
