Paper Abstract By fully exploiting the optical channel properties, we propose in this paper the coherent optical zero padding orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CO-ZP-OFDM) for future high-speed optical transport networks to increase the spectral efficiency and improve the system reliability. Unlike the periodically inserted training symbols in conventional optical OFDM systems, we design the polarization-time-frequency (PTF) coded pilots scattered within the time-frequency grid of the ZP-OFDM payload symbols to realize low-complexity multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel estimation with high accuracy. Compared with conventional optical OFDM systems, CO-ZP-OFDM improves the spectral efficiency by about 6.62%. Simulation results indicate that the low-density parity-check (LDPC) coded bit error rate of the proposed scheme only suffers from no more than 0.3 dB optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) loss compared with the ideal back-to-back case even when the optical channel impairments like chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) are severe.
