Abstract

A method is described for arrangement of channels from different stages of a three-dimensional shuffle/exchange network so that only a single set of optics is needed to perform the two-dimensional shuffles. This arrangement is based on our earlier one-copy algorithm. It requires a feedback system and is an example of a space-multiplexed optical multistage network. We discuss the design issues and experimental results.
