In this paper, by modeling a narrowband interference (NBI) as a wide-sense stationary (WSS), zero-mean Gaussian bandpass random process, a systematic theoretical framework is developed for the first time to characterize the operation and performance improvement of energy detection (ED) based impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) receivers that employ a nonlinear Teager-Kaiser operator (TKO) and a highpass filter. Furthermore, through both theoretical analysis and simulations, we have identified (1) that the TKO technique can effectively mitigate not only the performance degradation caused by an NBI but also that caused by additive white Gaussian noise and (2) that a larger bandwidth of the UWB signal leads to better mitigation. Therefore, the TKO technique is considered as a very promising technique to improve the overall performance of ED-based IR-UWB receivers no matter an NBI is present or not. © 2014 IEEE.
