Paper Abstract

Synthetic diffractive optical elements offer unique wavefront transformation capabilities, and, consequently, the means to solve many optical interconnection problems encountered in parallel all-optical and electro-optical processors. We describe the design and fabrication of a wide range of fixed space-invariant and space-variant diffractive optical interconnection devices, employing VLSI-based patterning and dry etching technology. We also discuss the realization of real-time reconfigurable optical interconnects using phase-modulating spatial light modulators.
