Summary:

Morton Photonics has developed widely tunable TTD devices with broad bandwidth and high linearity, for use in Phased Array Radar / Communications / EW. Devices being fabricated at a commercial foundry will provide a delay loss of ~2dB/ns, low coupling losses, for total losses of ~3dB for 500ps tunable delay.
