Paper Abstract

We propose two possibilities to combine multiple optical wavelengths with code division multiple access (CDMA) to achieve asynchronous access in diffuse IR-systems. A serial coding type which combines D-ary wavelength-shift keying with incoherent CDMA and a parallel coding type where the channels are distinguished by time/wavelength-matrices are investigated. We analyze the theoretical performance and show numerical results for different code families.
