Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

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.
