Abstract

A closed-form expression for the bit-error-rate (BER) of constant envelope orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CE-OFDM) in intensity-modulated direct-detection optical systems is provided in this letter. To the best of our knowledge, this letter is the first that provides an expression of the BER that considers the impact of electrical phase modulation index, signal bandwidth, optical modulation index, and Mach-Zehnder modulator bias point. Simulation and experimental results are included to validate the accuracy of the expression, subject to an analysis of the impact of electrical phase modulation index and the level of subcarrier mapping. With the analytical expression, we are able to reduce the computation time in design and parameter optimization of optical systems based in the CE-OFDM.
