Abstract : In this paper, we propose a multistage optical interconnection network using polarization switch arrays which is capable of realizing a multichannel reconfigurable optical interconnection network. The basic operation has been demonstrated with two-stage 4x4 network testbed using liquid crystal light valves (LCLVs). Furthermore, the feasible channel number as a function of the optical beam size and the routing algorithm for the 8x8 nonblocking crossconnect network are discussed. Finally, a concept of the extended 16xl6 Banyan network suitable for the integrated structure is presented.
