Abstract

We present theoretical and experimental results of a novel highly parallel multiplanar holographic interconnect design. It combines single-mode integrated optics with highly efficient volume holography and holographic waveguide couplers. A multiple-plane optical bus was fabricated. The interconnect density and power budget of the system are presented. This new type of very-large-scale integrated interconnect can provide performance benefits for local area networks and highly parallel supercomputing systems.
