Optical interconnects for very large scale integration systems based on planar waveguide holograms are analyzed. The combination of low loss waveguides and multiplexed waveguide holograms allows the construction of various compact planar architectures with high interconnect density and low insertion loss. The long interaction lengths possible in planar structures result in high angular and wavelength selectivity. Holographic grating couplers and multiplexed planar holograms for 1-to-3 interconnects and 1-to-3 multiple wavelength interconnects were fabricated.
