Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


This chapter is on the OCDMA technique that shows light on the present trends of coding and its future aspects. The challenges that are faced by this technology are also documented. This technique employs newly developed three-dimensional codes based on optical orthogonal codes and codes from algebra theory, and their performance is evaluated on two models, Model A and Model B. The results are judged in terms of bit error rate, number of users, eye diagrams, etc. Some experiments performed recently by researchers are also documented.
