An approach is described to integrate optical systems on single substrates. It uses free-space optical propagation of the light signals inside the substrate and lithographically fabricated optical elements that can be aligned and mounted with submicron precision. Two-dimensional arrays of surface-emitting laser diodes and detector arrays can be used to implement integrated-optical backplanes in electronic multiprocessor systems or all-optical computers.
