Abstract

We propose the first monolithic optical clock distribution network on wafer scale integrated circuits (WSIC). This new architecture can save real estate on VLSI chips and eliminate the packaging, alignment and interface problems of previously proposed architectures. A 1-to-3 optical fan out for clock signal distribution application is demonstrated by utilizing a DCG multiplexed volume hologram on a thin quartz plate.
