We demonstrate tunable time-slot-interchange of 40-Gb/s optical data packets using a conversion-plus-dispersion-based tunable 100-ns delay element. Separate 182-bit packets are converted onto separate wavelengths, delayed relative to one another using a dispersion module, and then re-inserted into new packet time slots.
