Soliton delay line based on a semiconductor superlattice

Solid-State Electronics


A new type of delay line intended for soliton pulses is proposed. As a nonlinear medium, a semiconductor superlattice is taken. Solitons that propagate along the superlattice layers are confined in cells bounded by transverse inhomogeneity layers. Solitons are confined and released with the help of an external electric current passing inside the cell.
