i in simulation project i used optical delay,you can see screen shot of it:

now when i set it to value 1, it has not any unit…
Generates optical signal delays. The delay is added by sending NULL signals to the output port.

Delay
Number of delay signals 1 – [0,+INF[

my question is what’s unit time delay in optic system , when i set 1 it has in nano second????
thank you best regards stackprogramer

    Good day,

    There is no actual time associated with the component “Optical Delay”. It is designed solely to produce a NULL signal at its output even when there is no signal at its input. Once a signal shows up at its input (after a few iterations) then the input will be carried through directly (no NULL signal will be produced).

    If you want to create an actual time delay, the “Time Delay” component should be used (for Optical).

    Cheers
