Novel methods on photonic generation of different pulse modulation formats for impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) over fiber application is overviewed. A flexible, high-speed and power-efficient photonic on-off keying and binary phase shift keying modulated IR-UWB over fiber communication system is proposed and demonstrated. IR-UWB transmission over 20km fiber and 0.25m wireless link without any compensation is presented. The transmission performance for both modulation formats is evaluated and compared by measuring eye diagrams and the electrical spectra.
