An optical pulse incident upon a diffractive structure under resonance conditions may undergo a temporal delay. The effect is demonstrated with a pulse of Gaussian profile at two geometries: a waveguide grating and a single-mode waveguide. It is shown that the order of magnitude of the delay can be controlled by the parameters of the structures.
