Abstract

A novel 1×4 reconfigurable optical splitter/combiner structure based on Opto-VLSI processor and 4-f imaging system with high resolution is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. By uploading optimized multicasting phase holograms onto the software-driven Opto-VLSI processor, an input optical signal is dynamically split into different output fiber ports with user-defined splitting ratios. Also, multiple input optical signals are dynamically combined with arbitrary user-defined weights.
