Abstract.  A joint algorithm, integrating selective mapping (SLM) and restorable clipping (RC), is proposed for the direct current-biased optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (DCO-OFDM) and visible light communication (VLC) system to reduce the nonlinearity impacts of light-emitting diode (LED) aggravated by high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and DC-bias. The performance of DCO-OFDM VLC system is analyzed and discussed with different techniques of LED nonlinearity alleviation. The simulation results show that compared to the original DCO-OFDM VLC system, the system with the proposed scheme can achieve about 4.8 dB improvement of PAPR reduction and 7 dB improvement of bit error rate (BER) performance. The reason is that the signals acquiring the desired shape in LED linear region can be recovered correctly without distortion induced by LED nonlinearity. It is demonstrated that the proposed SLM-RC technique effectively reduces not only PAPR but also the impacts of LED nonlinearity without BER deterioration.
