We present a reflective-type optical delay line using waveguide side-coupled 13 microring resonators terminated with a sagnac loop reflector. Light passes through the microring resonator sequence twice, doubling the delay-bandwidth product. Group delay is tuned by p-i-p type microheaters integrated directly in the microring waveguides. Experiment demonstrates that the delay line can potentially buffer 18 bits and the delay can be continuously tuned for 100 ps with a power tuning efficiency of 0… CONTINUE READING
