Abstract

A controllable optical delay line using a Brillouin optical fiber ring laser is demonstrated and a large time delay is obtained by cascading two optical fiber segments. In experiment, a single-mode Brillouin optical fiber ring laser is used to provide Stokes wave as probe wave. We achieve a maximum tunable time delay of 61 ns using two cascading optical fiber segments, about 1.5 times of the input probe pulse width of 40 ns. In the meantime, a considerable pulse broadening is observed, which agrees well with the theoretical prediction based on linear theory.
