Paper Abstract

To reduce four-wave-mixing crosstalk in long-haul wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) lightwave systems, the use of unequally spaced channels has recently been proposed. Instead of being solved y integer linear programming, the unequal-spaced channel-allocation problem is here treated as constructing suitable optical orthogonal codes in optical code-division multiple-access (CDMA). Three 'algebraic' algorithms on finding the frequency locations of unequally spaced WDM channels are reported. The constructions are based on generating optical CDMA codewords with a predetermined pulse separation and 'aperiodic' autocorrelation sidelobes no greater than one. The algorithms potentially provide a fast and simple alternative to solve the problem, besides the recently reported computer-search method.
