A model for digital synchronous delay line memory (DSDLM) is given, yielding limitations on the maximum number of bits that can be reliably stored for a given change in delay medium temperature and amount of medium dispersion. More than 22 million bits can be stored when single-mode optical fiber is used as the medium, but only if operated at the wavelength of minimum dispersion and by limiting thermal fluctuations to within 0.002 degrees C. A DSDLM is being constructed using such fiber, along… CONTINUE READING
