Paper Abstract

Free-space optical beams are increasingly being considered to interconnect arrays of processors [1]; for instance, researchers have proposed such optical means to implement the perfect shuffle [2,3,4]. So far the main aspect which has been studied is connectivity, i.e. how to achieve a particular interconnection pattern with adequate signal-to-noise ratio, and little attention has been paid to such aspects as time delays and beam diffraction, which can play major roles in the design of coherent optical processors [5,6,7].
