Abstract

We demonstrate reconfigurable photonic ultrawideband (UWB) pulse generation by injecting a phase-modulated optical wave into a semiconductor laser. By adjusting the injection power level and phase modulation depth, the photonic UWB generator is capable of generating either a single-optical-carrier monocycle or power-efficient UWB pulses. A UWB pulse with spectral power efficiency (SPE) of 36.10% has been achieved by optimizing the injection parameters. Transmission in an 8.4 km single mode fiber results in a degradation of SPE to 27.55% without significant pulse distortion.
