Spectrally Efficient 3D Optical CDMA Using Coherent Spatial Phase–Time Coding/Decoding



We demonstrate a WDM compatible optical CDMA system incorporating 3D spectral phase–time encoding/decoding. We provide coding and decoding using binary [0, π] phase chips for six users at 6 Gb/s, with a single coded signal separated with an acceptable bit-error rate 10 9. The coding and decoding method is based on 3D coding of tightly spaced phase-locked laser lines that is compatible with conventional WDM networking. In optical CDMA systems, we propose to provide encoding and decoding done by converting Hadamard codes (used for conventional CDMA system) to the phase codes. We report that duo-binary modulation format is the best with adequate bandwidth compression. We confirm that better simulation results are reached in terms of the Q factor and bit error rate.
