An all-optical ultrawide band (UWB) doublet pulse train signal generator is proposed and theoretically simulated by utilizing an inverse wavelength conversion base on the cross-gain modulation (XGM) effect in a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and controllable time delay in two optical delay lines (ODLs). The proposed scheme is not only optically switchable in the polarity of pulse by switching the polarity of input pulse but also tunable in signal pulse width and radiofrequency (RF) spectrum by tuning the ODLs.
