Abstract

An optical tunable delay line based on a side-coupled integrated spaced sequence of resonator (SCISSOR) structure in which pairs of resonances are tuned in opposite directions around the signal frequency is proposed and analyzed. It is shown that this balanced SCISSOR design mitigates the deleterious effects of group delay dispersion and provides both wide bandwidth and continuously tunable long delays without distortion.
