Paper Abstract

We report a 1-D, 1 Gbit/sec, fully integrated 1-to-10 optical planar bus array. The optical bus is made out of a thin glass substrate in conjunction with a 1-D hologram array, integrated on the surface. Based on the dispersion relation, the angular misalignment can be used to determine the wavelength tolerance of the optical bus, which is a representation of its modulation bandwidth. Using the experimental results of the angular tolerance, which is determined to be 0.5 degree(s), it can be shown that a wavelength coverage of 42 nm is achievable when this optical bus is used. The corresponding frequency is 7.5 THz.
