In this paper, we propose to use relay transmission as a powerful technique for performance improvement of free-space optical code-division multiple-access (FSO/CDMA) systems. Relay nodes are based on chip detect-and-forward to avoid decoding process that makes the relay nodes more complex. We formulate a closed-form expression for bit-error rate (BER) of(More)
This paper comprehensively analyzes the impact of four wave mixing (FWM) on the performance of multiwavelength optical code-division multiplexing (MW-OCDM) systems.

Previous studies show that, compared to on-off keying (OOK) signaling, pulse-position modulation (PPM) is favorable in FSO/CDMA systems thanks to its energy efficiency and simple detection. Nevertheless, when the system bit rate increases and the transmission distance is far, the FSO/CDMA systems using PPM signaling critically suffer from the impact of(More)
