In this article, we study the combination of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and full-duplex operation as a promising solution to improve the capacity of next-generation wireless systems. We study the application of full-duplex NOMA transmission in wireless cellular, relay and cognitive radio networks, and demonstrate achievable performance gains. It is shown that the effects of self-nterference and inter-user interference due to full-duplex operation can be effectively mitigated by optimizing/enhancing the beamforming, power control, and link scheduling techniques. We also discuss research challenges and future directions so that full-duplex NOMA can be made practical in the near future.
