In this letter, we propose a new detection method for an OFDM signal distorted by IQ imbalance, and a pilot pattern to estimate the channel associated with IQ imbalance. It is shown by computer simulation that the proposed method can achieve robust detection even when severe IQ imbalance exists in OFDM systems with an input of higher-order constellation.
