Paper Abstract

A planar optic set-up[1] composed of free-space optical components integrated on a glass block makes signal connections between 2-dimensional array of input and output optoelectronic devices via 3-dimensional glass space. Taking advantage of the compactness, easy alignment and thermal/mechanical stability, it can provide a useful approach to realizing an optical interconnection system in a practical way[2]. Therefore the planar optics imaging and transforming can render much improvement in power requirement, cost in alignment and packaging, and component size for the imaging and transforming optics.

In this paper, we investigate the imaging and transforming properties of planar integrated optics. The space band-width product of the planar optical imaging can be maximized by adjusting the number of zigzag bouncing in the glass substrate. The non-uniform spacing between the orders of planar optical transformation, such as Fourier transform and fractional transform, can also be reduced by the use of a toric-shape lens instead of spherical lens. Some experimental results to verify those properties are presented.
