With the growing demand for mobile communications, multicarrier (MC) schemes are receiving an increasing amount of attention, primarily because they handle frequency selective channels better than ordinary single-carrier schemes. However, despite offering several advantages, MC systems have certain weak points. One is a high sensitivity to interchannel interference (ICI). Using a Markov chain approach, we synthesized an optimal receiver for a situation where interference affects three adjacent subchannels. Simulation results showed that the proposed 'turbo scheme' provided better BER performance than a conventional receiver, especially at higher signal-to-noise ratios. The implementation of the turbo algorithm is independent of the transmitted signal, providing complete OFDM reception compatibility.
