Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

We present spectral amplitude coding, optical code division multiple access technique in free space optical network utilizing multi-wavelength laser source. Using the simulation software, the system performance is analysed while the impact of the turbulence is also considered. The simulation is implemented using modified double weight (MDW) code and for three users. The results show that using receiver aperture diameter, D, of 4 cm and beam divergence, θ, of 1 mrad, transmission distance 2.8, 2.45 and 2.25 km is achievable for weak, moderate and strong turbulence, respectively. This distance can be improved if bigger D or smaller θ were utilized; moreover, it is shown that the increment of turbulence increases jitter, which downgrades system performance.
