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: This paper presents a family of newly constructed codes to mitigate the multiple access interference (MAI) and phase-induced intensity noise (PIIN) in spectral amplitude-coding optical code division multiple access systems. The family of newly constructed codes, named matrix portioning (MP) code, is derived from arithmetic sequence, and their cross-correlation is not larger than one. In addition, the weight code can be any number which makes an MP promising code for future optical communication systems. We have also described detailed examples on how to construct this code family. The results reveal that the MP code is effective in reducing the MAI and PIIN, while maintaining a good signal-to-noise ratio and low bit error probability. Simulation results taken from a commercial optical system simulator, Virtual Instrument Photonic \((\hbox {VPI}^{\mathrm{TM}})\) , are also demonstrated. The results obtained for MP code have shown significant improvement compared to other schemes that employ flexible cross-correlation, multi diagonal, dynamic cyclic shift, and random diagonal codes. It is shown that, when the effective power is large, the intensity noise specifies as the main factor that deteriorates the system performance. When the effective power is not sufficiently large, thermal and shot noise sources become the main limiting factors and the effect of thermal noise is more influential than that of shot noise.

    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with the design of interleavers in a uncoded Wireless Optical IDMA (WO-IDMA) system, where at the receiver an iterative turbo-like structure is employed to perform multiuser detection. The choice of the interleavers affects both the Maximum-Likelihood (ML) performance and the impact of the suboptimality of the iterative receiver. For implementation of the interleavers in IDMA, the challenge is to fabricate them at affordable decoding complexity with available technology. In this paper, we first introduce various interleavers like random interleaver, master random interleaver, prime interleaver and tree based interleaver in wireless optical IDMA scheme. Then, we perform comparison on their BER performance and implementation complexity.
