Abstract
Using what is available to free-space optics, it is possible to construct a 4D network which multiplexes the time, temporal frequency, space and spatial frequency channels so that the switching complexity is reduced from the order of N2 to the order of N5/4. We proposed and experimentally demonstrated a simplified version of this network based on some multichannel acousto-optic deflector arrays.
