Potential ultra wide slow-light bandwidth enhancement.


We describe a method which has the potential to enhance the bandwidth of Brillouin based slow-light delay lines drastically. It is based on the overcompensation of the anti Stokes loss spectrum by additional pump sources. With this method it might be possible to overcome the bandwidth limit of Brillouin scattering which for one pump wave is given by two times the natural Brillouin shift in the incorporated waveguide. We will show experimentally that pulses can be delayed in the overcompensated loss spectrum.
