Full-duplex (FD) communication and spatial modulation (SM) are two promising techniques to achieve high spectral efficiency. Recent works in the literature have investigated the possibility of combining the FD mode with SM in the relay system to benefit their advantages. In this paper, we analyze the performance of the FD-SM decode-and-forward (DF) relay system and derive the closed-form expression for the symbol error probability (SEP). To tackle the residual self-interference (RSI) due to the FD mode at the relay, we propose a simple yet effective power allocation algorithm to compensate for the RSI impact and improve the system SEP performance. Both numerical and simulation results confirm the accuracy of the derived SEP expression and the efficacy of the proposed optimal power allocation.
