Abstract
In direct-detection optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems, the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) will cause nonlinear effects in both electrical and optical devices and optical fiber transmission when the nonlinear amplifiers are employed. A new hybrid technique based on carrier interferometry codes and companding transform has been proposed and experimentally demonstrated to reduce the high PAPR in an optical direct-detection optical OFDM system. The proposed technique is then experimentally demonstrated and the results show the effectiveness of the new method. The PAPR of the hybrid signal has been reduced by about 5.7 dB when compared to the regular system at a complementary cumulative distribution function of 10−4. At a bit error rate of 10−4, after transmission over 100-km single-mode fiber with a μ of 2, the receiver sensitivity is improved by 3.7, 4.2, and 5 dB with launch powers of 3, 6, and 9 dBm, respectively.
