Optical orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) symbol generation by all-optical discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is proposed and investigated for 100-Gbps transmission performance. We discuss a design example for a 4 × 25Gbps OFDM transmission system and its performance comparison with that for a 100-Gbps single-channel return-to-zero data transmission in an optically amplified system.
