Optical interconnections suitable for three-dimensional combining of lens arrays are presented. A multistage interconnection network with a self-routing function is described. The number of light paths this network is estimated to be capable of handling roughly ten or more times that of previously reported self-routing networks. Two separate lens arrays were fabricated to construct an 8×8 network of this design. The feasibility of the proposed interconnections was successfully demonstrated
