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. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Multiple access interference (MAI) noise reduction in a 2D optical CDMA system using ultrafast optical thresholding

Abstract

We demonstrate the reduction of MAI noise due to multiple simultaneous users in a 2D OCDMA system using optical thresholding. The system shows improved performance by reducing the power penalty increase when adding more users.
