OFDM-based Optical CommunicationS Systems


The use of the OFDM modulation in optical communication has attracted a high interest in recent years thanks to the possibility of simple equalization with moderate implementation complexity using digital signal processing techniques. The objectives of this research line are: development of algorithms for direct detection optical OFDM, analysis and evaluation of nonlinear optical effects in optical OFDM, implementation of a real-time demonstrator using high speed data converters (Gsps).
