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.
