Abstract

The perfect-shuffle-exchange interconnection network (e.g., the omega network) is a type of free-space regular multistage interconnection network. An equivalent omega network that consists of left- and right-perfect-shuffle interconnects as well as spatial light switch devices is described. An optical omega network that uses two special polarization prisms and a liquid-crystal spatial light switch is presented. The experimental results of a 8 × 8 omega network are reported. The optical omega network has the features of simple architecture and ease of integration.
