The integration of ultra-wideband (UWB)-over- ber into passive optical network (PON) is of great interest as it bene ts the high bandwidth capability from optical network technologies and the high exibility from wireless network technologies. The later can only be done with a reasonable cost when a universal optical transmitter, which is capable of generation both UWB and PON signals, is available. Direct modulation of semiconductor laser was demonstrated to be suitable for high bit-rate PON systems, however the generation of UWB signals by this technique is still challenging. Using the chirp properties of directly modulated semiconductor lasers, UWB signals are generated. Di erent UWB signal waveforms and polarities are obtained. The received electrical spectra conform to the requirements of indoor UWB systems.
