The optical transpose interconnection system (OTIS) provides a good interconnection using only a pair of lenslet arrays. We have designed and optimized various OTIS systems based on refractive, spherical diffractive, and aspheric diffractive lenslets. The optimization goal is to maximize power coupling into the elements of a detector array. The various design approaches are compared and the optimal design is extracted; the parameters of the model are then to be used for the fabrication of the lenslet array. We also address system geometry, symmetry, and illumination issues relevant to the system design.
