Abstract

A novel optical signal modulation concept of adaptively modulated optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (AMOOFDM) is proposed and numerical simulations of the transmission performance of AMOOFDM signals are undertaken in unamplified multimode fiber (MMF)-based links using directly modulated distributed feedback lasers (DMLs). It is shown that 28 Gb/s intensity modulation and direct-detection AMOOFDM signal transmission over 300-m MMFs is feasible in unamplified DML-based links having 3-dB bandwidths of 150MHz/km. In addition, AMOOFDM is less susceptible to modal dispersion and variation in launching conditions when compared with existing schemes.
