Pulse shaping is used in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based systems to reduce inter-carrier interference (ICI) power and peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), which are considered the major weaknesses in OFDM-based systems. A novel family of Nyquist-I pulses called sinc exponential pulse (SEP) is proposed, and it is characterized by two new design parameters that provide extra degrees of freedom for a certain roll-off factor, α. SEP effectively decreases the relative magnitude of the two largest side lobes of the SEP frequency function, which minimizes the ICI power and reduces the PAPR in OFDM systems. Furthermore, the SEP possesses a broader main lobe, which provides sufficient improvement in bit-error-rate (BER). The behavior of the SEP is examined in the time and frequency domain by tuning its design parameters to obtain the sub-optimum SEP. Theoretical and simulation results show that the sub-optimum SEP performs better than other existing pulses in terms of ICI power, signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) power, BER, and PAPR in OFDM-based systems.
