High-accuracy optical group delay measurements and modulator chirp characterization

Published

Author(s)

Tasshi Dennis, Paul A. Williams

Abstract

We present group delay measurements of a molecular absorption line for absolute calibration with 0.17 ps resolution. The distortion caused by modulator chirp is investigated and a novel, high-resolution method for chirp characterization is introduced.
