Paper Abstract

We propose a new architecture for an optical fast frequency- hop code division multiple access system using tunable Bragg gratings. Previously proposed architectures called for a series of in-fiber Bragg gratings, each independently tunable with a piezo-electric device. We propose a system where the entire fiber of multiple Bragg gratings uses one piezo-electric device to tune to a particular code. We introduce a new set of codes to take advantage of the new architecture and increase the bit rate of each user, as well as the total number of users and hence aggregate bit rate.
