Abstract
We report a generic method to construct 3D wavelength routers by adapting a novel design for multi-optical wavelength interconnects (MOWI's). Optical wavelength- selective (WS) interconnections are realized by resorting to layered diffractive phase elements. Besides, we simultaneously carry out several other integrated operations on the incident beams according to their wavelengths. We demonstrate an 4 X 4 inline 3D WS optical crossconnect and a 1D 1 X 8 WS perfect shuffler. The devices are well feasible for mass production by using current standard microelectronics technologies. It is plausible that the proposed WS MOWI scenario will find critical applications in module-to-module and board-to-board optical interconnect systems, as well as in other devices for short-link multi- wavelength networks that would benefit from function integration.
