Abstract

We propose and demonstrate an approach to the generation of an ultrawideband (UWB) pulse utilizing the nonlinear dynamics of a semiconductor laser (SL). The output UWB chaotic optical pulses generated by the SL with optical feedback can be controlled when the feedback strength and driving current of the SL are tuned. Our experiment proves that the spectrum characteristics of the UWB pulses satisfy Federal Communications Commission regulations, and the experimental results are consistent with the simulated results based on the laser’s rate equations.
