Paper Abstract

Electrical interconnect technology is becoming the major limitation in the realization of high-performance computing machines. The use of optical interconnections promises to alleviate key interconnect bottlenecks such as pinout, fanout, wiring density, and communication bandwidth. We present results of work on guided-wave optical interconnect circuits for eventual use within and between multichip packages. Low-loss integrated optical waveguides (<0.5 dB/cm), right-angle waveguide corner bends (<0.4 dB/cm), right-angle waveguide crossovers (<0.2 dB), and right-angle 1:2 waveguide branches (<0.5 dB) are presented.
