Abstract

We propose a novel all-optical tunable delay line based on soliton self-frequency shift and filtering broadened spectrum due to self-phase modulation to compensate for the frequency shift. We experimentally demonstrate the proposed all-optical tunable delay line and achieve a continuous temporal shift up to 19.2 ps for 0.5 ps pulse, corresponding to a delay-to-pulse-width ratio of 38.4.
