Paper Abstract

This paper shows the state of the art in fiber optical code-division multiple-access (CDMA). Recent work in this area for both, systems and sequences is reviewed and analyzed. For that purpose a classification of systems, corresponding to the manner of signal processing and a classification of known (0,1)-sequences are presented. It is shown that due to the limits by currently available device technology especially two techniques are promising for implementation in broadband telecommunication networks: spectral encoding with integrated optical filters and CDMA in combination with wavelength multiple access schemes. Further an overview about some important experiments in this field is given.
