Abstract

We present a technique for improving the pulse-delay performance of a stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) based broadband slow-light system by combining it with fiber Bragg gratings (FBG). We optimize the physical device parameters of three systems: (1) broadband SBS, (2)  broadband SBS + a single FBG , and (3)  broadband SBS + a double FBG for maximizing the delay performance. The optimization is performed under distortion and system resource constraints for a range of bit rates from 0.5 to 8.5 Gbps . We find that an optimized broadband SBS + a double FBG system improves the fractional delay 1.8 times that of the broadband SBS system at an optimum bit rate of 3 Gbps . Also, pump power consumption is reduced by 15% as compared to the broadband SBS system at the same bit rate.
