Paper Abstract

New optoelectronic interconnect hardware such as FCPT's Scalable System Film Component and Film Optical Link Module, and an increase in the number of optical devices in interconnect systems are raising the following desires; `3D optical wiring in a free space' and `self-aligned optical coupling'. Self-Organizing Lightwave Network (SOLNET) may provide the solution. SOLNET utilizes attractive force generated between light beams in photo-refractive materials, enabling straight/downtapered waveguide construction in a free space and automatic waveguide formation between optical devices. Proof-of-concept of SOLNET is demonstrated by computer simulations and experiments.
