Abstract

A novel compact holographic crossbar architecture based on planar optics is presented. It consists of a pair of identical planar holographic elements, a two-dimensional array (N × N) transmission mask, a one-dimensional array (N) of input light sources, and a one-dimensional array (N) of detectors. Each planar element contains two cylindrical holographic lenses, both of which are recorded on a single glass substrate. The design of the overall compact configuration is presented along with experimental results.
