Abstract

A novel optical bus interconnection system that uses Selfoc lenses is proposed. The technique can be categorized as one of free-space interconnects, and it has the potential to overcome the problems associated with the free-space optical system, such as difficulties of achieving precise assembling, compact mounting, and high durability. Its concept, fabrication techniques, features, and possible applications are discussed, along with an experimental result.
