Paper Abstract

Optical interconnection at high-speed and large-capacity transmission of data has the advantage of conveying information at large bandwidths in free space with less crosstalk than electronics. We propose here the design of micro-optical devices based in the multi-aperture compound insect eyes that will transfer a signal as a freespace multichannel point-to-point interconnection. These designs are inspired in the configuration of the superposition refractive compound eye as Gabor superlens by means of the implementation of microlens arrays. In our configuration the design equations, simulations, and optical performance are shown.
