Record-high 60 Gb/s optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmissions over intensity modulation and direct-detection (IMDD)-based 100 m optical mode (OM1) multi-mode fiber (MMF) links are experimentally demonstrated, utilizing 10 GHz electro-absorption modulated laser intensity modulators at a single 1550 nm wavelength. Adaptive bit loading and a simple central launching scheme of the proposed scheme show an effective way for combating the channel fading and simplifying the system structure. It shows good potential in short reach data center interconnections.
