This seminar is a conference practice talk for the Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP2012).
The interconnect bandwidth requirement in data-centers and high-performance computing has increased considerably over the last decade and conventionally copper cable based card-to-card interconnects have encountered several fundamental limitations. Multi-mode fiber and polymer waveguide based optical interconnects have been widely studied; however, these schemes are inherently point-to-point and non-reconfigurable. In this talk a high-speed full-duplex free-space based card-to-card optical interconnect architecture with flexibility and reconfigurability is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. 3*3 10 Gb/s data transmission for up to 30 cm is achieved with a receiver sensitivity better than -11.50 dBm.
