5G new radio uplink performance: Noise, interference and emission constraints

This paper investigates the 5G new radio (NR) uplink (UL) performance with CP-OFDM and DFT-s-OFDM based waveforms. The effects of highly non-linear PA behavior, inter-allocation interference, and UL multi-user MIMO on the relative performance of these waveforms are addressed. It is shown that with relaxed EVM and inband emission requirements for CP-OFDM, the coverage limited operation can be improved to achieve better link budget than DFT-s-OFDM based UL without performance penalty in the multi-user uplink. For high-throughput user equipment, the assumed highly non-linear PA behavior restricts the CP-OFDM based transmit power, which may limit the coverage compared to DFT-s-OFDM based waveform in UL without multi-user MIMO support. In UL multi-user MIMO scenario the CP-OFDM based waveform provides clearly better link performance and achieves better link budget than DFT-s-OFDM based waveform. Within the multi-user MIMO UL scenario, the requirement for substantially better PA linearity in high-throughput cases is also observed.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
