We fabricated photonic crystal slow light waveguides integrated with multi-heaters, using CMOS-compatible process. By optimizing heating powers and adjusting the index distribution, a clear delay peak was observed, which suggests that the fabrication errors were compensated for completely. When a linear index chirp was added to this condition, the delay was tuned by 54 ps. When a quadratic chirp was added, arbitrary group delay dispersion was generated at wavelengths around 1550 nm within a 3 nm bandwidth. The continuously tunable range was from -32 to 54 ps/nm/mm. Using this as a dispersion compensator, we compressed pre-chirped pico-second pulses.
