Paper Abstract

In order to solve capacity and energy-efficiency problems of future Internet technologies simultaneously, in this paper, we propose the use of energy-efficient N-dimensional (ND) orbital angular momentum (OAM) coded-modulation. The energy-efficient signal constellation is obtained by employing the energy-efficient signal constellation design algorithm. This scheme can achieve beyond 100 Gb/s transmission while employing the state-of-the-art 10 Gb/s technology. The proposed scheme significantly outperforms conventional M-ary PAM. The proposed scheme represents a promising candidate for indoor optical wireless communication, terrestrial free-space optical (FSO) communication, data center applications and can be used as enabling technology for heterogeneous optical networking, thanks to its transparency to both free-space optical and few-mode/multimode fiber links.
