Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

12 Scopus citations


The possibility of 10-Gb/s transmission over graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI-POF) using the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and iteratively decodable codes is demonstrated by simulations. Several classes of low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes suitable for use in LDPC-coded OFDM transmission over GI-POF are presented as well. Several power efficient OFDM schemes are introduced.
