Abstract

We propose a planar optical configuration for implementation of crossover interconnects. The planar overlay allows two-dimensional pixel arrays located on a wafer-scale integrated circuit to be interconnected in a compact and vibrationally robust configuration. By using an acute-angle microprism array with apex angles of 70.52 deg fabricated on a silicon substrate, we show the experimental result of the crossover interconnections. Some practical limits of the planar optical crossover interconnections are also discussed.
