Performance of Random Diagonal Codes for Spectral Amplitude Coding Optical CDMA Systems
Source: Universiti Malaysia Perlis
In this paper the authors study the use of a new code called Random Diagonal (RD) code for Spectral Amplitude Coding (SAC) optical Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) networks, using Fiber Bragg-Grating (FBG). FBG consists of a fiber segment whose index of reflection varies periodically along its length. RD code is constructed using code level and data level; one of the important properties of this code is that the cross correlation at data level is always zero, which means that Phase Intensity Induced Phase (PIIN) is reduced. They find that the performance of the RD code will be better than Modified Frequency Hopping (MFH) and Hadamard code. It has been observed through experimental and theoretical simulation that BER for RD code perform significantly better than other codes.
