Abstract

This letter presents a visible light communication (VLC) system based on a single 50-µm gallium nitride light emitting diode (LED). A device of this size exhibits a 3-dB modulation bandwidth of at least 60 MHz—significantly higher than commercially available white lighting LEDs. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing is employed as a modulation scheme. This enables the limited modulation bandwidth of the device to be fully used. Pre- and postequalization techniques, as well as adaptive data loading, are successfully applied to achieve a demonstration of wireless communication at speeds exceeding 3 Gb/s. To date, this is the fastest wireless VLC system using a single LED. Index
