Paper Abstract

The cost of components for optically interconnected systems, such as optoelectronic device arrays and computer generated holograms, depends on their method of manufacture. In this paper, we build analytic models that measure component cost based on the cost and yield of each manufacturing step. Using these models we show that for large optoelectronic arrays, the most cost-effective implementation is hybrid, not monolithic. Moreover, we show that the most cost-effective interconnection hologram is monolithic.
