—A multi-channel free-space micro-optical module for dense MCM-level optical interconnections has been designed and fabricated. Extensive modeling proves that the module is scalable with a potential for multi-Tb/s.cm 2 aggregate bit rate capacity while alignment and fabrication tolerances are compatible with present-day mass replication techniques. The micro-optical module is an assembly of refractive lenslet-arrays and a high-quality micro-prism. Both components are prototyped using deep… CONTINUE READING
