We introduce a non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) scheme for next generation passive optical network (PON) with single carrier transmission and frequency domain successive interference cancellation (FD-SIC), which offers low peak to average power ratio, a good balance between throughput and fairness, and a higher system capacity for a larger number of users. The feasibility of the proposed scheme is verified with 6.6 Gbps bidirectional NOMA-PON transmission. The effect of power allocation on the bit error rate performance is investigated.
