Abstract

The authors propose a tunable delay line using an optical single-side-band modulator and an optical fiber loop. The number of times light circulates in the loop can be controlled by the electric signal fed to the modulator. Packets of any lengths can go through the proposed delay line without any collisions, even if the length of the packet is larger than that of the delay loop.
