In this paper, we propose and demonstrate a novel technique to optically generate high-chip-count, phase-coded direct-sequence (DS) ultrawideband (UWB) signals for multiple-access UWB communications. In the proposed system, a lightwave from a laser source is phase-modulated by a Gaussian pulse train. The phase-modulated lightwave is then sent to a polarization modulator, to modulate the polarization state of the lightwave by a code pattern. The polarization-coded optical signal is then converted into a biphase-coded DS-UWB signal by a polarization-dependent frequency discriminator. The key device in the proposed system is the frequency discriminator, which is implemented using a length of polarization maintaining fiber (PMF) and a polarizer. A 127-chip, biphase-coding DS-UWB that has a data rate of 26.46 Mb/s and a chip rate of 3.36 Gb/s is experimentally generated. A multiuser UWB-over-fiber system is then proposed and a two-user system is demonstrated, in which the encoding is performed experimentally and the decoding is performed by numerically calculating the correlation between the coded UWB signal and the signature sequence. The signal of each user is well recognized. An effective two-user UWB-over-fiber system based on the DS-UWB technology is thus demonstrated.
