In this paper, in order to properly promote usage's of optics for future interconnection applications, we revisit some fundamental physics governing light propagation in linear media. In particular, we wish to address how the point-topoint data communication capacity is related to the degree of freedom (DOF) of optics, and how packaging and other constraints limit the DOF of optics for exercising its power of interconnections. We hope that a correct understanding of the fundamentals of optics for interconnections can help maximize its advantages while bypassing its drawbacks.
