Free-Space Multistage Optical Interconnection Networks Using Micro Lens Arrays

  • S. Kawai
Part of the Springer Series in Electronics and Photonics book series (SSEP, volume 29)


New optical interconnection networks with a self-routing function using lens arrays, whose optical systems have low aberration and high light power efficiency, are presented. Interconnection experiments are successfully demonstrated using two sets of planar micro lens arrays.
