This work presents the characteristics and expected capabilities of an optical interconnect that uses a diffractive liquid crystal over silicon (LCOS) device as a routing element. Such an interconnect may be used in a neighborhood's optical network to distribute high definition television, thus avoiding an electronic or optical transmitter for each user. The optimal characteristics of the LCOS device are calculated in terms of pixel number and silicon area and found to be feasible with today's… CONTINUE READING
