Abstract
OPTICAL SWITCHING AND INTERCONNECTS ARE OF GROWING INTEREST DUE TO THE INCREASING DEMANDS FOR HIGHER DATA RATES AND LARGER NUMBERS OF DATA CHANNELS CREATED BY ADVANCED COMPUTING AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. FREE-SPACE OPTICAL SWITCHING AND INTERCONNECTS (SUCH AS THE IMAGE BASED SWITCH) ARE ATTRACTIVE BECAUSE OF THEIR POTENTIAL FOR LOW CROSS TALK AND LOW COMPLEXITY. DISPLAYTECH HAS EXPERIENCE WITH USING SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS FOR BEAM STEERING, FIELD-OF-VIEW STEERING, AND THE PROJECTION OF COMPUTER GENERATED HOLOGRAMS. THESE APPLICATIONS HAVE A GREAT DEAL IN COMMON WITH THE IMAGE BASED OPTICAL SWITCH.
