Performance comparison of proposed 3-d coherent spatial-phase-time coding/decoding with super structured fiber Bragg grating-based optical CDMA systems
In this paper, performance comparison in terms of bit error rate (BER) of proposed WDM compatible optical CDMA system incorporating 3-D spectral-phase-time encoding/decoding to a 7 chip-super-structured fiber Bragg grating (SSFBG)-based optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) system is investigated. Coding and decoding using binary [0, π] phase chips is demonstrated for six users at 5 Gb/s, and a single coded signal is separated with acceptable bit-error rate ≤10−9. In our proposed optical CDMA system encoding and decoding is done by converting hadamard codes (used for conventional CDMA system) to phase codes. It is then compared with two optical pulse retiming and reshaping systems incorporating super structured fiber Bragg gratings (SSFBGs) as pulse shaping elements. Simulation results show that with all input bands having same sample rate, size data rates our proposed codes with even larger number of channels perform better in terms of eye opening & BER.
