Abstract

Low-density parity-check (LDPC) coded orthogonal-frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is studied as an efficient coded modulation technique suitable for fiber-optics communication systems. We show that in long-haul fiber optics communications LDPC-coded OFDM increases spectral efficiency and requires simple equalization to deal with chromatic dispersion. LDPC-coded OFDM is also a promising polarization-mode dispersion compensation technique. Several power efficient OFDM schemes and LDPC codes suitable for use in LDPC-coded OFDM optical communication systems are discussed.
