    Abstract: Asynchronous optical packet switching seems to a suitable transport technology for the next-generation Internet due to the variable lengths of IP packets. Optical buffers in the output port are an integral part of solving contention by exploiting the time domain. Fiber delay lines (FDLs) are a well-known technique for achieving optical buffers, and...
