Zero correlation zone (ZCZ) sequence sets play an important role in interference-free quasi-synchronous code-division multiple access communications. In this paper, for the first time, we investigate the periodic correlation properties of polyphase sequences obtained from paraunitary (PU) matrices, which shows the inherent relationship between PU matrix and ZCZ sequence sets. Our investigation suggests that any arbitrary PU matrix can produce ZCZ sequence sets by controlling its expanded form. The key idea is to impose certain restrictions on the expanded forms of the PU matrices to enable precise computation of the periodic correlation functions of the constructed sequences. We show that ou..
