  1. Cabrera-Granado, E; Calderón, OG; Melle, S; Gauthier, DJ, Observation of large 10-Gb/s SBS slow light delay with low distortion using an optimized gain profile, Opt. Express, vol. 16 no. 16032 (September, 2008), pp. 16032-16042 [pdf] .

    An optimum SBS gain profile is designed to achieve better slow-light performance. It consists of a nearly flat-top profile with sharp edges. Tunable delays up to 3 pulse widths for 100-ps-long input pulses, corresponding to 10 Gb/s data rates, are found while keeping an output-input pulse-width ratio below 1.8. Bit-error-rate (BER) measurements performed for a non-return-to-zero modulation format demonstrates 28 ps of delay under error-free operation.
