Paper Abstract

Multistage interconnection networks (MINs) are used to create wide diameter networks with a logarithmic number of stages. To further reduce the costs of constructing and operating this type of network, these stages can be stored in a volume hologram and accessed sequentially to achieve the same functionality as a MIN. We discuss the design of such a system and demonstrate a prototype that uses infrared sensitive photorefractive lithium niobate to store a wavelength multiplexed volume holographic lens array. The holograms were recorded at 800 nm and several stages were multiplexed in a single hologram, each separated by as little as 0.6 nm. The optical system performance was analyzed and the results discussed.
