Abstract We analyse the effect of crosstalk noise on the performance of free space optical interconnects (FSOIs). In addition to 'diffraction-caused' crosstalk, we consider the effect of 'stray-light' crosstalk noise which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been addressed previously. Simulations were performed on a microlens based FSOI system using the modal composition and beam profiles experimentally extracted from a commercial Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser. We demonstrate that this crosstalk noise introduces significant degradation to interconnect performance, particularly for multi-transverse mode laser sources. A simple behavioural model is also developed which accurately approximates the crosstalk noise for a range of optical sources and interconnect configurations.
