Paper Abstract

High quality diffractive optical interconnect elements (DOIEs) were designed and fabricated for integration into a smart pixel, high performance optoelectronic computing module system. A cost effective DOIE replication method was developed in which the fine features of a candidate set of DOIEs were successfully reproduced. Accurate multiple phase levels were replicated utilizing an injection molding technique. This process was developed using two different types of materials: a copolymer and an acrylic. One hundred units were successfully reproduced (50 units of the copolymer and 50 units of the acrylic) from a single master DOIE that contained 2 micrometers X 2 micrometers pixels with up to 64 phase levels per pixel.
