Optical-coordinate transformation methods and optical-interconnection architectures

David Mendlovic, Haldun M. Ozaktas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The analogy between optical one-to-one point transformations and optical one-to-one interconnections is discussed. Methods for performing both operations are reviewed and compared. The multifacet and multistage architectures have the flexibility to implement any arbitrary one-to-one transformation or interconnection pattern. The former would be preferred for low-cost and low-resolution applications, whereas the latter would be preferred for high-cost and high-performance applications.
