—We optimize modulation formats for the additive white Gaussian noise channel with nonnegative input, also known as the intensity-modulated direct-detection channel, with and without confining them to a lattice structure. Our optimization criteria are the average electrical, average optical, and peak power. The nonnegative constraint on the input to the(More)
In this paper, the design and analysis of a new bandwidth-efficient signaling method over the bandlimited intensity-modulated direct-detection (IM/DD) channel is presented. The channel can be modeled as a bandlimited channel with nonnegative input and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Due to the nonnegativity constraint, standard methods for coherent(More)

—In the experimental study of modulators for coherent optical communications, it is common to generate multilevel signals using a single pseudo-random binary sequence. This simple experimental realization leads to symbol correlation. When modulators are studied in combination with adaptive receiver algorithms that rely on independent data, misconvergence(More)
— A performance trade-off investigation is carried out between different possible uplink multiple access schemes, that are based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), for International Mobile Telecommunication (IMT) Advanced systems. Between the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) precoded systems with different subcarrier allocation mappings(More)
—The maximum achievable rate or mutual information of multidimensional rotationally invariant distributions in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise is analyzed. A simple expression for the special case of multisphere distributions is derived. Such distributions consist of points in a multidimensional Euclidean space that are uniformly distributed(More)
—One of the key limitation of massive MIMO systems is pilot contamination, which is defined as the interference during uplink channel estimation due to re-use of the same pilots in surrounding cells. In this paper, we propose a location-based approach to the pilot contamination problem for uplink MIMO systems. Our approach makes use of the approximate(More)
