Paper Abstract

A hybrid incoherent optical fiber code-division multiple- access (CDMA) scheme is presented in which encoding is based on the Kronecker product of two short component sequences of relatively large weight. The first short sequence permits realistic electronic encoding of each data bit. The 'chips' of this sequence are then all-optically encoded at substantially higher speed but the all-optical encoder remains practical by virtue of the shortness of the sequences. It is shown that by judicious selection of component sequences the network can accommodate a large number of simultaneous users without sacrificing BER performance due to multiple-access interference.
