Sensitivity of OFDM and MC-CDMA to Carrier Phase Errors

In this contribution, we investigate the effect of carrier phase errors on the performance of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and multicarrier code-division multiple access (MC-CDMA). We show that OFDM and MC-CDMA have essentially the same sensitivities to carrier phase errors. A constant carrier phase offset yields no degradation of the… CONTINUE READING
