Abstract: Current interconnect technology based on wired links is a viable solution in the short term only[17]. Wireless interconnects used in either the radio or optical spectrum su er from important design complexity constraints [10] [24] [23]. MIMO free space optical communications can be severely limited by optical crosstalk. Crosstalk is a cause of either very wide, unfocused beams of light, misalignment between transmitter and receiver elements, or both. To address this limitation, space-time codes, largely developed for radio frequency channels, have been adapted for use in a free space micro-optical interconnects system and are demonstrated in this thesis. Results quantify the bit-error rate performance and computational complexity of using space time coding for optical interconnects relative to conventional optical interconnect technologies. Consequently, this thesis considers a hardware implementation of space-time coding techniques which sustains data integrity for free space micro-optical interconnects. Coding and decoding the data in a way speci c for wireless MIMO systems (adapted for use in optical communications) allows the system to take advantage of high optical bandwidth while introducing various levels of overhead and computational complexity.
