A novel optical pulse width management device is proposed and demonstrated. The device requires very slow switching energy, on the order of a few tens of femto-joules. It can perform stretching of a RZ to a much broader pulse, and conversion of RZ data streams to NRZ format for bit rates greater than 20 Gbit/s.
