Abstract:We present the first demonstration of a broadband and continuously tunable integrated optical true-time-delay line, operating over the complete DVB-S satellite communication band, realized with a CMOS-compatible TriPleXTM waveguide technology. The integrated optical chip includes a delay line and an optical sideband filter (OSBF) based on reconfigurable optical ring resonators (ORR). The filter and the delay responses are software programmable and have been configured for Ku-band operation. For the first time, the continuous tunability between 0 and 277 ps is demonstrated over the complete for DVB-S satellite communication band (10.7-12.75 GHz).
