—In this paper, a new multirate optical network based on a hybrid slotted-ALOHA (S-ALOHA)/overlapped code division multiple access (O-CDMA) system is proposed as an effective way of integrating multiclass traffic. The key issue in this proposal is to exploit the potential of the optical O-CDMA using fiber Bragg gratings when jointly used with the S-ALOHA(More)
—This paper addresses the problem of real-time mul-timedia transmission in fiber-optic networks using code division multiple access (CDMA). We present a multirate optical fast frequency hopping CDMA (OFFH-CDMA) system architecture using fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). In addition, we argue that, in multimedia applications, different services have different(More)
We present a small and lightweight fully wireless optogenetic headstage capable of optical neural stimulation and electrophysiological recording. The headstage is suitable for conducting experiments with small transgenic rodents, and features two implantable fiber-coupled light-emitting diode (LED) and two electrophysiological recording channels. This(More)
— In this letter, we propose a class of irregular structured low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with low error floor and low encoding complexity by designing the parity check matrix in a triangular plus dual-diagonal form. The proposed irregular codes clearly lower the error floor and dramatically improve the performance in the waterfall region of(More)
