Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A novel incoherent transceiver design for optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) system based on the (hybrid) frequency-polarization shift keying, so-called F-PolSK is proposed for the application in the passive optical networks
(PON). In the system analysis we have considered the presence of (i) optical amplified spontaneous emission noise, (ii) electronic receiver noise, (iii) photo-diode shot-noise and (iv) multiple-access interference. The results revealed that the proposed architecture can easily accommodate a greater number of users with efficient power consumption. Furthermore, the system security is much
enhanced due to two-dimensional advanced modulation in optical domain.
