Abstract

We have investigated the performance of an incoherent optical code division multiple access network using three distributed feedback laser diodes as the multi-wavelength optical source. The system, operating at 2.488 GHz, has 10-9 bit error rate measurements with -35 dBm optical power and pseudorandom bit sequence of length 231-1. The distributed feedback laser is a promising alternative optical source to miniaturize the optical code division multiple access system.
