This article describes a new approach to cancel the pulse broadening in a cascaded slow-light system. With the help of a simple experimental setup a method with significant potential to achieve a high pulse delay at almost zero pulse broadening is shown. Since the pulse reshaping is done inside a single delaying segment, this method can be used in connection with any other Brillouin based slow-light system.
