Abstract
The noninteraction of photons makes free-space optics for optical interconnections an important asset to the digital optical computer. In this paper, we describe a space-variant optical system and apply it to the case of an optical interconnection network. As experimental proof of the device's merit, the so-called inverse perfect shuffle interconnection network is shown in one and two dimensions. Considerations regarding the demonstrated system's limitations are also presented.
