Broadband single-carrier frequency division multiple access (SC-FDMA) uplink using frequency-domain square-root Nyquist filtering is considered. The peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of filtered SC signals can be reduced by increasing the filter roll-off factor á. Furthermore, an additional frequency diversity gain can be obtained by making use of the excess bandwidth introduced by the transmit root Nyquist filtering. However, if the carrier-frequency separation is kept the same as in the case of α = 0, the adjacent users' signal spectra overlap with the desired users' spectrum and the multiuser interference (MUI) is produced. In this paper, we propose two frequency-domain iterative MUI cancellation schemes which can achieve the frequency diversity gain through spectrum combining. The achievable bit error rate (BER) and throughput performances are evaluated by computer simulation.
