Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

We present a complete analysis of the operation of an ultra-fast tunable parallel optical delay line. Based on our analysis, we propose and experimentally demonstrate a generalized serial–parallel delay line structure, which provides better scalability with respect to the number of timeslots. The delay line uses one electro-optic modulator and an all-fiber delay lattice. We also present a discussion on two important performance measures of this delay line – the tuning speed and the optical power loss.
