Abstract

Optical arbitrary waveform generator (OAWG), which can generate pre-distorted ultra-wideband (UWB) pulses to tolerate the chromatic dispersion (CD) of the fiber without any other CD compensation solutions, provides a good solution for the UWB over fiber system. In our paper, we experimentally demonstrate a new OAWG scheme based on multiple incoherent continuous wave lights by double side band with suppressed carrier (DSB-SC) modulation. UWB Gaussian monocycle and doublet pulses are generated and the chromatic dispersion of 20-km, 50-km and 100-km single-mode fiber (SMF) are compensated by the OAWG system without any other CD compensation solutions.
