Abstract

A general optical interconnection system with phase-only masks is proposed; it is a high-efficiency system. The optical general transform theory is modified for the design. Results show that an arbitrary one-to-one interconnection pattern between an array of N sources and N detectors can be achieved by two phase-only masks in which the number of sampling points is N2.
