In this paper a new type element that can implement perfect shuffle (PS) network of free spatial optical interconnection is presented. It is a microoptics array element consisting of a series of sub-blazed gratings with different spatial frequency. The array has highly efficient light energy and a very simple setup. It can realize 1-D, 2-D PS networks and their inverse transforms. Also, the array can conveniently realize microminiaturization and multilevel interconnection and other forms of interconnections.
