Abstract

We propose a scheme for a direct-detection optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system based on blockwise signal-phase-switching (SPS). Experimental demonstration of 61Gbits/s SPS direct-detection optical OFDM signal transmission over 80 km standard single-mode-fiber was successfully achieved with single polarization and a single photodetector.
