Abstract

A simple and feasible technique for ultra-wide-band (UWB) pulse bipolar modulation (PBM) and pulse shape modulation (PSM) in the optical domain is proposed and demonstrated. The PBM and PSM are performed using a symmetric phase modulation to intensity modulation conversion architecture, including a couple of phase modulators and an optical bandpass filter (OBPF). Two optical carriers, which are separately phase modulated by two appropriate electrical pulse patterns, are at the long- and short-wavelength linear slopes of the OBPF spectrum, respectively. The high-speed PBM and PSM without limit of chip length, polarity, and shape are implemented in simulation and are also verified by experiment. © 2009 Optical Society of America
