Abstract

We propose the use of a computer-generated hologram that combines a fanout and focusing element that can be used to perform an optical perfect-shuffle interconnection. The hologram is designed by calculation of the interference fringes between diverging waves from four point sources and a reference plane wave. With this element we show experimentally the resulting perfect-shuffle pattern. The use of the computer-generated hologram makes it easy to implement a planar optical perfect-shuffle interconnect, which is compact, has low aberration, and is easy to align. The planar optics configuration for a perfect-shuffle interconnection network is also discussed.
