We propose a relatively simple optical generation concept for impulse radio ultra wideband (IR-UWB) pulse over fiber transmission using a weighted sum of a modified doublet with its inverted and delayed version. The generated pulses not only fi4ly comply with the FCC spectral mask but also are highly power efficient in the available spectrum. We verified our approach using both simulation and experimental demonstration. The concept has a potential to be integrated with other optical functions on a compact optical chip, making it very suitable for wide UWB deployment for highspeed wireless access at low costfor in-building network applications.
