It is shown that a negative contribution to the group-velocity dispersion always accompanies angular dispersion. We describe structures, such as slabs and prisms, that use this contribution to provide adjustable group-velocity dispersion. We discuss, in particular, considerations regarding incorporation of these structures with a laser resonator. A description of possible submillimeter semiconductor devices is also given.
