Abstract

Multigigabit-per-second true time delay (TTD) was experimentally demonstrated by use of optical coherent transient techniques in a Tm3+:YAG crystal. A delay accuracy of 1  ps and a delay resolution of 7  ps (both measurement limited) were achieved. The retrieved data retained good fidelity.
