Paper Abstract

This presentation deals with the use of an incoherent optical processing device for optical interconnections in digital systems. Our device is based on a lenslet-array/mask assembly. The lenslet array creates multiple images of the input. The mask controls the interconnections pattern by blocking parts of these images. The device can operate with polychromatic and spatially incoherent light, so it can use many electro-optical light sources. Device limitations and capabilities are analyzed. This analysis shows that up to 107 elements may be connected by such devices. A demonstration of a simple digital circuit is presented.
