Long optically controlled delays in optical fibers
Optically controlled delay lines in optical fibers are demonstrated by use of the group-velocity control of signal pulses based on stimulated Brillouin scattering. We achieve continuous time delay within the range of 150 ns, much larger than the width of the 40 ns signal pulse, using cascaded fiber segments joined by unidirectional optical attenuators. In the meantime, we also observe a large amount of pulse broadening, which agrees well with a theoretical prediction based on linear theory. © 2005 Optical Society of America.
