    Abstract

    Extensive research has been carried out on the performance investigation of two-dimensional wavelength hopping/time spreading optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) codes, which are based on picosecond multiwavelength pulses under the influence of temperature variations resulting from changing environmental conditions. Equations have been derived to theoretically evaluate the extent to which such temperature changes will degrade the overall OCDMA system performance. To mitigate these negative effects on the OCDMA system, several steps have been introduced to improve the code robustness. System design improvements have then been investigated. We also found they would help to improve the spectral efficiency.
