Abstract
We demonstrate two all-optical methods for UWB pulse generation based on various nonlinearities of the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), namely, self phase modulation (SPM), and cross gain modulation (XGM). In the first method, we present UWB doublet generation based on SPM. The monocycle pulse is generated from dark return-to-zero (RZ) signal, and then converted to doublet pulse by injecting an additional probe signal with the SMF transmission. For the first time to best of our knowledge, we report that the generated doublet pulses are transmitted over 5km SMF by proper dispersion compensation without distortion. Second, we present UWB doublet generation by XGM of two cascaded SOAs. The configuration of our all-optical methods is compact and simple.
