Abstract

Planar light guide plate with one in-coupling and N out-coupling surface relief gratings is designed to perform as optical backplane broadcasting system for board-to-board connections. The performance of the element is analyzed theoretically with rigorous electromagnetic theory and results are confirmed experimentally. In addition, optical backplane elements have been replicated using conventional injection molding and UV-replication techniques.
