Introduction, Network Design and Applications - This paper describes 3-D dynamic optical interconnection networks that interconnect a 2-D array consisting of N x N input lines with a similar 2-D array of N x N output lines. These 3-D networks make specific use of the volume (non-planar) nature of optics and permit the design of interconnections that are extremely difficult or impossible to implement with planar electronic VLSI technology.
