Paper Abstract

The design, component selection, fabrication, testing, and evaluation of an optically-switched, binary, fiber optic programmable delay line are discussed. The basic building blocks, including laser diode which is based on a rate equation model, external modulated transmitter, transmission fiber and receiver, are explained. The system comprises eight delay stages, has a maximum delay of 6.4μs with a 100ps step and operates over the 1-18 GHz band. This computer controlled prototype used low-cost commercially available components in conjunction with graded-index, single-mode fiber. Its overall performance is satisfied with the simulation result.
