Abstract:This paper is focused on increasing the zero correlation zone (ZCZ) of even-length binary Z-complementary pairs (EB-ZCPs). Till date, the maximum ZCZ ratio (i.e., ZCZ width over the sequence length) for systematically constructed EB-ZCPs is 2/3. In this paper, we give a construction of EBZCPs with lengths (where , and are non-negative integers) and ZCZ widths , thus achieving asymptotic ZCZ ratio of 3/4. The proposed EB-ZCPs are constructed via proper insertion of concatenated odd-length binary ZCPs (OB-ZCPs). The ZCZ width is proved by exploiting several newly identified intrinsic structure properties of binary GCPs obtained from Turyn’s method. The proposed EB-ZCPs have aperiodic autocorrelation sum magnitude of 4 outside the ZCZ region (except for the last time-shift taking aperiodic autocorrelation sum value of zero).
