AbstractThis thesis presents the design, fabrication, and analysis of a board level free space interconnect system based on holographic optical elements. The interconnect scheme is implemented in a prototype with four fully interconnected transceiver modules. The design and fabrication procedure for the holographic optical elements is presented in detail. The impact of the electro-optical and electronic components on the system is analyzed and the performance of the integrated system is presented. Alternate components for future development such as diffractive binary lens arrays are discussed.
