Optical fiber communication has emerged as a high potential substitute for communication methods such as twisted pair and coaxial wire. The main advantage of optical fiber over previous methods is to have higher capacity of data rate transmission. The conventional types of modulation and demodulation technique, which have been used through optical fiber communication system are Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technique and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technique so far.
In this thesis, the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is applied through the modulation and demodulation parts due to some advantages over WDM and DWDM to reach to 100 Gbps data transmission. The main advantage of OFDM-optical fiber is that it only needs one optical source to modulate and one optical source to demodulate the signals at transmitter side and receiver side, which results in a reduction of the cost of the system. Also, by using the OFDM, the chromatic dispersion can be eliminated or decreased.
