Paper Abstract

High packing density true-time-delay lines based on substrate guided wave propagation combined with slanted volume phase grating fanout couplers are reported. Three-bit delay lines with delay step of approximately 100 ps are fabricated on BK-7 substrates with a substrate bouncing angle of 45 degrees. The fanout power fluctuation problem is experimentally investigated. An ultrashort laser pulse is sent through the device and a bandwidth measurement of 2.5 THz is obtained. The 100 ps delay step is also measured by employing an ultrafast MSM-photodetector together with a sampling scope. Optically heterodyned signals up to 25 GHz also are detected through the delay unit with a signal-to- noise ratio of 20 dB.
