Recently, in spite of immatureness of optical technology, many optical code generation and processing technologies and related technologies have been developed because of their potential abilities of ultra high-speed and/or ultra wideband processing and many applications in future photonic network. In Optical Code Division Multiple Access (OCDMA) and Optical Packet Switching (OPS) system, optical code (i.e. optical label in OPS systems) generation and processing are key technologies. Many different types of Optical Code (OC) processing technologies have been proposed and demonstrated.
