Paper Abstract

Highly polarization-selective holographic elements can be achieved with suitable designs. The presented holographic polarization-selective elements are compact and light- weight, and the feature of normally incident and output coupling provide better flexibility and easier alignment for system applications. With suitable designs and arrangements, these elements can be combined to implement star couplers to distribute equal optical power from each input channel to all output channels. In addition, based on our holographic polarization-selective elements with electro-optic halfwave plates, holographic polarization-dependent and polarization- independent optical switches are introduced. The structures to use these switches in various compact 3D multistage interconnection networks for reconfigurable interconnections and in self-healing rings for network service restoration are presented.
