Abstract:Coherence multiplexing (CM) is a potentially inexpensive form of optical CDMA, which is particularly suitable for optical access networks or LANs. Various system topologies are known for achieving multiplexing of several CM channels over one optical fiber cable. In this paper, we will consider the parallel array (PA), the discontinuous series (DS) system and the intrinsic-reference ladder (IRL) system, and compare them with regard to noise performance and practical implementation aspects. A modification to the IRL-system is proposed, resulting in a significant improvement in the theoretical noise performance.
