Abstract

Two planar optics configurations for crossover interconnects are described, and the interconnection capacity of each configuration is derived on the basis of Gaussian beams’ being relayed by microlens arrays. To reduce the optical path differences between bypass- and exchange-connection routes in the crossover configurations, we propose the use of two different substrates.
