Paper Abstract

The concept of an optical "micro-area network" is introduced as a means of providing reconfigurable optical interconnection between VLSI chips. Key integrated fiber-optic components of the optical micro-area network, including a modulator, tap, and photodetector, are proposed and demonstrated. Using these components, the experimental demonstration of a synchronous optical micro-area network, with a time-division multiple-access communication protocol, is reported.
