Paper Abstract

Optical interconnects relying on holographic optical elements commonly suffer from strong chromatic aberrations. These aberrations limit the coupling efficiency of optical links if the laser wavelength varies with time or from sample to sample. Semiconductor lasers are the only candidates for optical links because of their efficiency and compactness. Unfortunately, these lasers show a strong tendency to wavelength drifts. Therefore, the flexibility of holographic interconnects can only be saved if the chromatic aberrations are reduced. Here, 4 different achromatized optical interconnecting schemes are discussed which have been under investigation for the last few years in our department. This report summarizes the achromatization efforts for space-invariant as well as for space-variant interconnects.
