Paper Abstract

The design of some communication systems requires the implementation of time delays within the system. As a result, the system design often becomes more complex and/or the system size is increased when the delay is accomplished by digitizing the RF analog signal or using RF transmission lines cut to the length necessary to accomplish the time delay. This time delay can be accomplished with a variety of optics technologies, which could be readily fabricated and integrated into the communication system without significant impacts on the system design. This paper describes three different potential applications of optics designs, which could be implemented to accomplish the time delay requirements associated with communication system.
