Indoor diffuse wireless optical intensity channels are bandwidth constrained channels in which all transmitted signals must be non-negative. In this work, a new signaling method for ISI-free transmission for bandlimited intensity modulated direct detection channels using higher level modulation schemes is presented. Taking this into account, the channel can be modeled as a band limited channel with non-negative input and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Due to the non-negativity constraint, standard methods for coherent band limited channels cannot be applied here. Previously established techniques for the IM/DD channel require bandwidth twice as that required for the conventional coherent channel. This paper proposes a method to transmit the information without inter-symbol interference in a bandwidth smaller than the bit rate. By this method, it is possible to transmit the information with a bandwidth equal to that of conventional coherent channels without ISI. This can be achieved by combining Nyquist or root-Nyquist pulses with a constant bias and using higher-order modulation formats. A trade-off between optical power gain and the required bandwidth is investigated. For a particular bandwidth, the most power-efficient transmission is obtained either by the parametric linear pulse or by better than Nyquist pulse.
