This paper investigates the performance of Enhanced Double Weight (EDW) code for Spectral-Amplitude-Coding optical Code Division Multiple Access (SAC-OCDMA) system using different detection techniques. EDW code is the enhanced version of modified double weight code. Enhanced double weight code possesses ideal cross-correlation properties and weight can be any odd number which is greater than one. The experimental simulation results as well as the transmission performances are presented in this paper. The primary goal of the design of the OCDMA systems is the data extraction by a user in the presence of other users or in other words, the presence of Multiple Access Interference (MAI).
