Abstract
Recent advances in tunable optical delays and their applications are discussed. Conversion/Dispersion based delays are highlighted including recent delays in excess of 3.6 μs for a 100-Gb/s signal and the application of delays towards optical buffering and signal processing. Limiting factors of achieving large conversion/dispersion delays are discussed as well as the techniques being used to overcome them. Finally, recent applications of these delays towards the implementation of optical tapped-delay-lines for optical equalization and correlation of amplitude and phase based signals is presented.
