Spectrally phase-coded optical code division multiple access (OCDMA), demod-ulated with phase and polarization diversity devices, exhibits high spectral efficiency and low Multiple Access Interference (MAI). Use in a passive optical network (PON) is discussed. OCDMA offers great promise for high-capacity, secure, and flexible fiber optic communication, but(More)
A novel coherent optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) network based on phase and polarization diversity balanced reception of spectrally encoded optical pulses is proposed. Spectral efficiencies of 1 bps/Hz and beyond can be achieved by minimizing multiple access interference (MAI) and by cancelling beat noise. While the system achieves full(More)
