Abstract

A space invariant multiple imaging system using an array of tilted mirrors is proposed for optical free-space regular interconnections. The system has the potential for large number and high density of input nodes, high fanout capability, and low power loss. An eighteen-cube interconnection of 512 × 512 nodes could be implemented in this system using a 6 × 6 mirror array. Experimental results for a four-cube interconnection are shown.
