Main Module

ofdm_qam.m

Simulation of linear and nonlinear single polarization CO-OFDM fiber optic communication systems.


This Module calls the following Sub Modules and Components:

(1) qam_ofdm_transmitter.m
Performs the IFFT of the data sequence.

(2) power_meter.m
Calculates the average optical power in dBm units.

(3) fiber_prop.m
Propagation in optical fiber (takes into account fiber dispersion and loss).

(4) amp.m
Multiplies the input signal by gain factor and adds noise (the amount of noise is controlled by n_{sp}).

(5) opt_rect_filt.m
Optical ideal band pass filter to truncate the spectrum.

(6) AtoD_convert.m
Analog to digital converter. The resolution N_{res} should be specified.

(7) DtoA_convert.m
Digital to analog converter. The resolution N_{res} should be specified.

(8) ofdm_receiver.m
Performs the FFT operation.

(9) ber_calc_qam_ofdm.m
Calculates the symbol error rate.

9b.1 Change the number of subcarriers from 64 to 2048. Keep the symbol rate fixed at 12.5 GBaud and keep the tmax (and tmin) fixed. Calculate symbol error rate in each case. Compare the computational time as a function of the number of subcarriers. Change the guard interval if necessary to preserve the carrier orthogonality.

9b.2 Change the transmission distance from 1600 km to 3200 km. Change the launch power if necessary so that BER is in the range of  10^{-3} to  10^{-2}Change the guard interval so that carrier orthogonality is preserved. Plot the symbol error rate as a function of the guard interval.

9b.3 Change the resolution of the A to D (and D to A) converter from 2 bits to 8 bits and plot the symbol error rate as a function of the resolution.

9b.4 Design and simulate following QAM-M coherent optical OFDM fiber optic system links:

10 Gb/s, 512 subcarrier, 40 span QAM-M CO-OFDM fiber optic system link
25 Gb/s, 1024 subcarrier, 20 span QAM-M CO-OFDM fiber optic system link
40 Gb/s, 2048 subcarrier, 10 span QAM-M CO-OFDM fiber optic system link
