In visible light communications (VLC) the main bottleneck is the limited bandwidth of the light emitting diodes, which limits the maximum transmission data rates. Multicarrier modulation schemes are one possible option to increase the data rate as well as improve the link performance. In this paper, we present the turbo coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) scheme to mitigate interference and noise as well as to remove multipath induced inter symbol interference in a VLC system. Simulation results are used to compare the performance of the proposed system compared to classical optical OFDM schemes of DC-biased optical and asymmetrically clipped optical-OFDM. The results presented may be used to investigate the interaction between VLC system parameters (e.g., receiver field- of-view limitation, incident angle, light emitting diode power)and the bit error rate performance of the soft turbo decoder.
