The purpose of this letter is to investigate the feasibility of full-duplex non-orthogonal multiple access (FD-NOMA), where uplink and downlink NOMA transmissions are carried out at the same time. Analytical and simulation results are provided to demonstrate that FD-NOMA can offer significant performance gains over half-duplex NOMA and orthogonal multiple access, provided that co-channel interference is sufficiently suppressed.
