Abstract

The optimum design of free-space optical interconnection systems utilizing diffractive optics is determined from a practical engineering standpoint for systems ranging from space invariant to fully space variant. System volume is calculated in terms of parameters such as the f-number of the diffractive lens, the wavelength of light, and also the total number, size, and separation of the optical sources and detectors. Performance issues such as interconnection complexity, diffraction efficiency, and signal-to-noise ratio are discussed. Diffractive optics fabricated by electron-beam direct-write techniques are used to provide experimental results for both shuffle-exchange and twin-butterfly free-space optical interconnects.
