We describe an approach to achieve the optical perfect-shuffle interconnection network in an ordinary optical imaging system; a holographic grating is inserted in the proper position, and a corresponding spatial filter is inserted in its back focal plane. This approach is simple, and the space–bandwidth product of the optical system can be better utilized. As an experimental demonstration, the perfect-shuffle interconnection network is shown in one and in two dimensions.
