A novel reconfigurable optical interconnect architecture for on-board high-speed data transmission is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The interconnect architecture is based on the use of an Opto-VLSI processor in conjunction with a 4-f imaging system to achieve reconfigurable chip-to-chip or board-to-board data communications. By reconfiguring the(More)
A novel reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) structure is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. The ROADM structure employs two arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs), an array of optical fiber pairs, an array of 4-f imaging microlenses that are offset in relation to the axis of symmetry of the fiber pairs, and a reconfigurable Opto-VLSI(More)
Radio frequency (RF) signal processors based on photonics have several advantages, such as broadband capability, immunity to electromagnetic interference, flexibility, and light weight in comparison to all-electronics RF filters. It still requires innovative research and development to achieve high-resolution reconfigurable photonic RF signal processors(More)
A novel integrated reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (RODAM) structure is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. The ROADM employs an interface substrate that enables the integration of a fiber collimator array and an Opto-VLSI processor to realise a 4-f imaging system through optical beam steering. Experimental results demonstrate the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel integrated reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (RODAM) structure based on using an Opto-VLSI processor and a 4-f imaging system. The 4-f imaging system composed of a fiber array, a lens array and an Opto-VLSI processor can be fabricated on a substrate to form an integrated optical interface. Experiments were(More)
