Analysis and Simulation on Spectral Phase-Encoded OCDMA System (subscription required)

Abstract

Abstract
This paper analyzes the temporal behavior of pseudo-random code and the effects on a spectral phase-encoded time-spreading OCDMA System. A spectral phase-encoded time-spreading optical code division multiple access system designed by Optiwave’s Optisystem was demonstrated. The system’s performance was simulated under the different pseudo-random phase codes. The OCDMA system’s performance would be better if the phase codes have equal amount of 1 and -1 and improved by increasing phase code length. The system performance is evaluated by the Bit Error Rates (BER).
