Abstract

This paper fundamentally investigates the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) theory in all optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems which employ intensity modulation-direct detection (IM-DD) scheme. We propose a low-complexity PAPR reduction scheme based on phase pre-emphasis. Simulations show that the proposed scheme brings about a 3.74 dB PAPR reduction and better nonlinear impairment tolerance in a 16×10Gb/s IM-DD all optical OFDM system.
