Abstract

A cost-effective method of multi-receiver optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OOFDM) system is proposed to reduce the requirement for the speed of the receiver and the size of fast Fourier transform (FFT). The sampling rate of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) can be reduced to 1/N of the original signal bandwidth in an N-receiver system. Aided by signal predistortion at the transmitter, aliasing-free signal can be retrieved independently and directly at the low speed receivers. A back-to-back experimental result is given for a two-receiver system. The effect of the electrical filters added before the ADC is studied and the analysis for filters optimization is given.
