Wavelength aware receiver for enhanced 2D OCDMA system performance

Baby, V. and Bres, C. S. and Glesk, I. and Prucnal, P. R. (2004) Wavelength aware receiver for enhanced 2D OCDMA system performance. Electronics Letters, 40 (6). pp. 385-387. ISSN 0013-5194

A novel receiver for two-dimensional (2D) optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) which utilises the wavelength information of the codes to provide enhanced performance than the regular receiver is presented. The performance improvement increases with the number of wavelengths. Maximal spectral efficiency is doubled, for carrier-hopping prime codes.
