Mechanical means for temperature compensation of planar diffractive optical interconnects: feasibility study
Author(s): Yehoshua Socol

Paper Abstract

Planar diffractive optical interconnects have many advantages, however, their inherent chromaticity leads to temperature instability due to the wavelength shift of laser diodes' radiation. This shift can be compensated if the optical interconnect is bended in an appropriate direction with curvature proportional to the relative wavelength shift. The bending can be performed by attaching an additional plate to the element with a different thermal expansion coefficient. Theoretical analysis and ray tracing are reported.
