Abstract

In this thesis, a method is developed for the analysis and simulation of arbitrary complex, single layer, rectilinear, passive optical interconnection circuits. The method considers dielectric waveguide type optical interconnections which can be beneficially employed at the chip-to-chip or backplane level of high performance computing circuits. In the method developed, a circuit is broken down into elementary blocks whose loss and coupling properties are known. Thus, the overall loss and noise for each connection can be calculated. A high speed algorithm based on this method has been imjjlemented. The high speed of the analysis system makes it suitable for incorporation in an iterative design system, which determines the minimum spacings I)etween the guides that result in acceptable crosstalk and noise levels.
