Paper Abstract

A new device concept for fabricating polymer-based reconfigurable electro-optic interconnects based on a guide-wave electro-optic beam deflector in conjunction with multiplexed waveguide holograms is presented. The presented device takes fully advantage of a thin-film electro-optic prism array and multiplexed waveguide holograms, capable of reconfiguring more than 50 optical interconnection channels using a single electrode and a single electrical driving source. No any moving component and DC bias are required. The presented device is advantageous whenever there is a need for high-speed, reliable, compact, los- loss and low-power reconfigurable optical interconnection.
