The Fresnel transform provides a means to implement circuit switching networks by using optical techniques. Since photons can cross paths without interaction, non-blocking configurations are easy to achieve. Furthermore, any arbitrary interconnections between two N-port systems can be configured; the network can be rapidly reconfigured as needed due to the dynamic nature of acousto-optic cells.
