Abstract : Apparatus and method for a variable wide band fiber optic delay line. The apparatus comprises components that allow a user to select a delay time of a signal by the use of a wavelength tunable laser. The user selected wavelength determines the length that a light intensity signal corresponding to an electronic signal travels, thereby determining the time of delay.
