Paper Abstract

Efficiency of PAM, CAP/QAM and OFDM/DMT modulation for Step Index Polymer Optical Fiber channel is analyzed theoretically. It is shown that for the same transmitted optical power and same BER they offer similar data throughputs. However, when the light source has limited dynamics the crucial factor is the peak to average power ratio of the modulating signal. This is the greatest for OFDM/DMT and smaller for CAP and PAM. Consequently, the efficiency for PAM and CAP should be comparable whereas that of DMT – inferior. This conclusion was confirmed by experimental results.
