ABSTRACT
We present a new optical interconnect platform consisting of a multilayer integrated optical circuit board which provides unprecedented communications capacity with minimal signal loss at circuit board scales. The enhancement in spatial communication density could reduce the size of large distributed systems by up to two orders of magnitude (and hence reduce latency and power) and could enable supercomputers which fit on a single circuit board.
