Paper Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a new technique for realizing wavelength tuning that promises rapid response over a wide optical bandwidth. Wavelength tuning is obtained by varying the delay of the RF pulse that time-gates a linearly chirped Super Continuum (SC). Preliminary experiments demonstrating static tuning range of 90nm are reported.
