An optoelectronic implementation of polynomial evaluation has been presented which uses a recirculating inverse perfect shuffle interconnection (IPS). The IPS interconnection is formed by a binary phase grating which permits a high density of interconnection; it can be utilized in a high order of polynomial evaluation processing system.

Key words : optical interconnection, binary phase grating, polynomial evaluation
