We experimentally demonstrate continuously-tunable OTDM using SBS-based slow-light. Two 75-ps misaligned 2.5-Gb/s RZ channels are successfully multiplexed, resulting in 9-dB power-penalty reduction.. Variable-bit-rate OTDM is demonstrated at three different bit-rates, all with error-free operation.
