Abstract

A light-efficient folded perfect shuffle network is described. Two-dimensional (2-D) raster encoding of the processing element nodes is used to accommodate large arrays with simple imaging optics. The network uses 2-D arrays of lenslets and prisms to correct for magnification and replication losses. Simulation results show the required prism arrays to be of low complexity and suggest that the network is tolerant to imperfections in the prism parameters.
