What is an Optical Delay Line – ODL?

An Optical Delay Line (ODL) is an electric-optic-electric instrument. It performs fixed time delay(s), between a few nanoseconds up to several hundred microseconds, for RF signals from 10MHz up to 40GHz and more. There are low-frequency ODL versions ranging from 10MHz to 6GHz. The high-frequency ODLs versions are up to 8GHz, 15GHz, 18GHz, 20GHz, and…
