Abstract

We present three new three-dimensional right-cylindrical folded modular interconnection architectures. To compare these systems among each other and with earlier designs, we introduce several figures of merit. The figures of merit describe such aspects of the system as the compactness, the relative angles of the optical axis to optical elements in the system, and system manufacturability. These figures of merit permit the designer of such an optical system to choose the geometry best suited for a particular application.
