Paper Abstract

The purpose of this study is to apply a free-space optical interconnection to a reconfigurable board-to-board connection where the wiring patterns connecting boards are optically formed without electrical-optical conversion. We regard a photorefractive bi-directional connection module (PBCM) based on a mutually pumped phase conjugate mirror as a key device to construct such a connection network and employ PBCMs at input/output interfaces of each board. Although optical behaviors of PBCM are influenced by the exposure conditions, we especially focus on the diameter of beams illuminating photorefractive media placed inside PBCM so as to find some geometrical restrictions in a design of networking system. Through numerical analyses, we show a sample configuration of PBCM for the board-to-board interconnection and present a conceptual design of input/output interface.
