Abstract

We demonstrate the high-speed electrical delay tuning of slow light pulses using Si photonic crystal waveguides. The device has an i-region-chirped pin diode, within which thermo-optic and carrier plasma effects are generated by forward bias. The former changes the delay up to 62 ps for the DC bias. The latter changes the delay for 1 Gbps pseudo random bit sequence tuning signals, which will be applicable to advanced time-domain optical signal processing.
