Orthogonal-frequency-division multiplexing for dispersion compensation of long-haul optical systems.


We show using simulations that a combination of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Optical Single Sideband Modulation (OSSB) can be used to adaptively compensate for chromatic dispersion in ultra-long-haul 10 Gbps Standard Single-Mode Fiber (S-SMF) links. Additionally, for optical noise limited systems with Forward-Error Correction, OFDM can tolerate an Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) 0.5 dB higher than NRZ systems providing the optical carrier is suppressed.
