A novel method for optical generation of ultra-wideband signals with a reconfigurable spectral notch-band is proposed. In the proposed system, ultra-wideband signals are generated in the optical domain and an optical tunable delay line is deployed to introduce a notch-band to the spectral profile of the generated ultra-wideband signals, which can effectively avoid the signal interference between ultra-wideband signals and pre-planned narrowband wireless signals used in wireless local area
