Title (EN) PHOTONIC WAVEGUIDE
(FR) GUIDE D’ONDE PHOTONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The system (200) provides a photonic waveguide (210) formed on a substrate (220) and a plurality of steering mirrors (230) within the photonic waveguide. The steering mirrors can be configured to direct a light beam (240) between two or more computing components (260). A plurality of steering mirror supports (250) are located within the waveguide having preset locations. The steering mirror supports are configured to enable the steering mirrors to be selectively repositioned at the preset steering mirror supports within the photonic waveguide to create varying configurations. The steering mirrors in the varying configurations direct one or more optical beams to form multiple connectivity channels between computing components within the photonic waveguide.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système (200) utilisant un guide d’onde photonique (210) formé sur un substrat (220) et une pluralité de miroirs d’orientation (230) à l’intérieur du guide d’onde photonique. Les miroirs d’orientation peuvent être conçus pour diriger un faisceau lumineux (240) entre deux composants informatiques (260) ou plus. Une pluralité de supports de miroirs d’orientation (250) est située à l’intérieur du guide d’onde comportant des emplacements préétablis. Les supports des miroirs d’orientation sont conçus pour permettre que lesdits miroirs soient sélectivement repositionnés sur les supports de miroirs d’orientation préétablis à l’intérieur du guide d’onde photonique afin de créer des configurations variables. Les miroirs d’orientation dans les configurations variables dirigent un ou plusieurs faisceaux optiques pour former de multiples canaux de connectivité entre des composants informatiques à l’intérieur du guide d’onde photonique.
