ABSTRACT An examination is made of fiber-optic code-division
multiple-access (FO-CDMA), a technique in which low information data
rates are mapped into very-high-rate address codes (signature sequences)
for the purpose of achieving random, asynchronous communications free of
network control, among many users. The need for a special class of
signature sequences to achieve the multiple-access capability using
fiber-optic signal processing techniques is discussed. A class of
signature sequences called optical orthogonal codes (OOCs) that provide
the auto- and cross-correlation properties required for FO-CDMA is
introduced and used in an experiment to show the principles of FO-CDMA.
The experiment demonstrates the auto- and cross-correlation properties
of the codes. The concept of optical disk patterns, an equivalent way of
representing the OOCs, is introduced. The patterns are used to derive
the probability density functions associated with any two interfering
OOCs. A detailed study of different interference patterns is presented,
and the strongest and the weakest interference patterns are determined

    ABSTRACT: In this paper the performance and the capacity of two-level asynchronous incoherent optical CDMA (OCDMA) systems employing wrapped overlapping pulse position modulation (WOPPM) and optical AND logic gate receiver are analyzed. These analyses are performed by considering the multiple access interference as the main limiting factor. Because of the power limitation in some laser sources, the same-symbol-power scheme for all users is assumed. Optical orthogonal codes with the same length are assigned to the users of each class. Considering the throughput as constraint, the effects of the number of users in each class and the weight of low-weight users on the performance of each class are examined and the results are compared with the same-mark-power case. Finally, the effect of WOPPM signaling parameters such as overlapping index and total number of symbols on the error probability of each class is investigated in the presence and in the absence of throughput constraint. Our results show that when the multi-level technique is employed in WOPPM OCDMA systems, one can find solutions for some design problems that cannot be handled by conventional one-level methods. In addition to this benefit, employing this technique leads to a less complex transceiver structure.

    ABSTRACT: when designing Optical Networks-On-Chip, designers have resorted to make dialogue between emitters (lasers) and receivers (photo-detectors) through a waveguide which is based mainly on optical routers called λ-router. In this document, we propose a new method based on the multiple concepts of Inputs and Output, and we give a model of the channel propagation, then we discuss the MIMO CDMA systems to assess its performance. For this we present the family of code used and we develop the receiver algorithm of such systems. Finally, we present simulations to validate the presented system.
