Based on the theory of information optics and binary optics a new method of achieving a perfect shuffle transform is reported by using a microblazed grating array. The field distribution at the output plane and the equations of period of the microblazed grating array are obtained. According to these equations, the technical design and fabricated parameters are accomplished and proposed. It is shown that the theoretical analysis accords well with the practical application in a sequence of fabrications and testing experiments. The conclusions of the theoretical analysis and the experiment are important and will significantly guide the realization of optical switching and optical interconnection by using micro-optical diffractive elements. It is proved that the micro-optical elements will play an important role in the field of optical networks and optical computing.
