Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design of binary holograms producing weighted coupling between planes of single mode devices. Theoretical results are reported on the coupling of single mode devices in terms of an expansion of the hologram outputs into distinct diffractive sidelobes. In this formalism, the coupling efficiency between two devices is given by the product of the fan-out and fan-in efficiencies of the respective transmitting and receiving holograms. It is shown how the simulated annealing algorithm can be used to produce binary holograms with the desired coupling properties. Computational and experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the method.
