Abstract

We investigate the design and performance of a reconfigurable optical interconnect structure based on vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL), Opto-VLSI processors and photodetector arrays. We optimise a proof-of-concept 3-VCSEL-element structure that eliminates crosstalk caused by unwanted diffracted optical beams and show that a bit error role (BER) of 10'17 is feasible at 3.2 Gbps for each channel.
