The accelerated growth in the performance of microprocessors and the emergence of chip multiprocessors, which are widely leveraged in current Data Centers (DCs) and High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems, have motivated the need for developing novel technologies for interconnection networks. Characterized by high bandwidths, low power dissipations, time of flight latencies, and distance immunity, Optical Interconnection Networks (OINs) have been proposed as a promising solution. In recent years, there have been considerable research efforts in designing OINs including OSMOSIS, Data Vortex and DOS.
