Chip-level waveguide-mirror-pillar optical interconnect structure
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07)
Waveguides, mirrors, and polymer pillars can be integrated together to provide optical interconnects to the chip level. Total internal reflection in the polymer pillar provides a high level of spatial confinement of the ...
Optical and electrical interconnect partition length based on chip-to-chip bandwidth maximization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-04)
The lengths beyond which board-level optical waveguides are capable of transferring a larger number of bits per second than electrical interconnects are found for various technology generations. As technology scales ...
Polylithic integration of electrical and optical interconnect technologies for gigascale fiber-to-the-chip communication
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-08)
Polylithic integration of electrical and optical interconnect technologies is presented as a solution for merging silicon CMOS and compound semiconductor optoelectronics. In contrast to monolithic and hybrid integration ...
Quasi-free-space optical coupling between diffraction grating couplers fabricated on independent substrates
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-10)
Optical coupling between preferential-order volume diffraction grating couplers fabricated on independent substrates is demonstrated. The coupling efficiency between gratings is quantified as a function of both grating and ...
Board-level optical-to-electrical signal distribution at 10 Gb/s
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-09)
An opto/electrical prototype for on-board optical-to-electrical signal broadcasting operating at 10 Gb/s per channel over an interconnect distance of 10 cm is demonstrated. An improved 1 4 multimode interference (MMI) ...
