Abstract

Phase pre-emphasis is theoretically studied and introduced to reduce peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In intensity modulated (IM) systems, simulations show noticeable PAPR reductions: 4.14 dB (N = 16) and 15.48 dB (N = 512) in time lens-based OFDM, N is the number of subcarriers. An equation is developed to calculate phase values and is proved to be effective. Optical implementing methods are proposed and analyzed. In a time lens-based OFDM system, phase pre-emphasis reduces fiber nonlinearity and results in a 5.2-dB increase of launch power at the bit error rate (BER) of 10?6. Simulations also show similar PAPR reduction and fiber nonlinearity mitigation in optical inverse discrete Fourier transformer (OIDFT) based OFDM systems.
