Abstract:

The evaluation of the components used to construct a free space digital optical processor is presented. This processor is based on a gate-level optical inter-connect utilizing symmetric self-electro-optic effect devices S-SEEDs and vertical cavity surface emitting lasers VCSELs. The evaluation of both the S-SEED devices and the electronics necessary to drive the microlaser array is performed. The design and construction of a diffractive optic interconnect is also presented.
