Paper Abstract

A folded structured light generator is presented. This spot array generator is to be used in a modulator-based free- space optical interconnect. Three cascaded diffractive optical elements produce 4 X 8 clusters on an 800 micrometers X 1600 micrometers pitch, where each cluster is a 4 X 4 array of 13.1-micrometers -radius spot on a 90-micrometers pitch. The folded configuration is more compact than an existing linear spot array generator. Details of the optical design and assembly issues are presented.
