Raad, I., Huang, X. & Lowe, D. (2006). Study of spread codes with block spread OFDM. Proceedings of the First IEEE International Conference on Wireless Broadband and Ultra-wideband Communications Sydney: University of Technology Sydney.


This paper presents the study undertaken with block spread OFDM and compares three spreading matrices. The matrices include the Hadamard, Rotated Hadamard and Mutually Orthogonal Complementary Sets of Sequences (MOCSS). The study is carried out for block lengths of M = 2, M = 4 and M = 8 and it shows that all the spreading matrices show improvement and a better performance over the conventional OFDM over frequency selective channel as expected. As the size of M increased the spreading matrices which have better orthogonal qualities show greater improvement.
