Abstract

The effect of beat noise on two-dimensional time-wavelength optical code-division multiple-access systems utilising wavelength-aware receivers is examined. A derivation of a general formula for the bit error probability taking into consideration multiple access interference (MAI) and other noise sources is given. In addition, a comparison between the system performance of such a receiver and the traditional configuration is presented. Studies to date that have focused only on the MAI limited case showed that the wavelength-aware configuration yields a better performance when compared to the traditional receiver. When beat noise is considered, the numerical results reveal that the performance of wavelength-aware receiver is very sensitive to beat noise and is not superior over the traditional receiver.
