Abstract

This work is concerned with a comparison between commercial available high-power LEDs, which have the same chip size but different power ratings (20 W, 30 W and 50 W), to find the most appropriate for Li-Fi applications, in terms of bandwidth before and after bandwidth extension. Two basic types of commercial LEDs were compared ('cool' and 'warm'), where the bandwidth of both types was in the range of 3 to 4 MHz, for all power values. After bandwidth extension, there was a marked disparity in the bandwidth between the several types, where the bandwidth increased to approximately 17 MHz for the 'warm', 33 MHz for the 50 W 'cool' and 36 MHz for 20 W and 30 W 'cool' LEDs. The bandwidth extended LEDs were implemented for a Li-Fi application based on offset PPM modulation transmission scheme at a rate of 13 Mbps. It was found that 'cool' LEDs have a more favourable performance than 'warm' LEDs in terms of data transmission and bit error rate (BER). Additionally, 20 W and 30 W LEDs have achieved a lower BER than the 50 W.
