Abstract

We demonstrate tunable time-slot interchange of 40Gbitss optical data packets using a conversion–dispersion-based tunable optical delay element. Odd and even data packets are extracted from an input signal, delayed relative to one another in a highly dispersive medium, and then multiplexed back together. Tunability is demonstrated by operating with two different packet lengths, 182 and 288  bits/packet, and a bit error rate of <109 is achieved.
