Abstract

We investigated a tunable delay-line using an optical single-sideband modulator and an optical fiber loop. The single-sideband modulator consists of four optical modulators and an RF electric signal source. The fiber loop has a fiber Bragg grating and a couple of optical circulators. The number of times light circulates in the loop depends on the frequency of the rf-signal fed to the modulators. By using numerical simulations, we discussed the deformation of the waveform in the delay-line due to the fiber Bragg gratings, the modulators and the optical amplifiers put in the loop.
