Unitary Checkerboard Precoded OFDM for Low-PAPR Optical Wireless Communications

Future 6G wireless networks will once again have to raise the capability in most of the technology domains by a factor of 10-100. Depending on the application, future requirements include peak data rates of 1Tb/s per user, 0.1ms latency, less than 1 out of a million outage, centimetre accurate positioning, near zero energy consumption at the device, and operation in different environments including factories, vehicles, and more... Optical wireless communications (OWC) have the potential to provide ultra-high data rates in a cost effective way, thanks to the vast and freely available light spectrum, and the availability of devices for transmitters and receivers. 5G NR architecture permits the integration of stand-alone OWC nodes on network layer. Current 6G research investigates advanced physical layer designs including OWC-compatible waveforms. In this context, in this paper a new pre-coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) waveform is proposed that is tailored to the OWC specific needs. Its prime advantage compared to OFDM is the ultra-low peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), while preserving other benefits, such as high spectral efficiency, flexible subcarrier nulling, and low computational complexity. read more
