Abstract

A derivation of a general formula for the bit error rate of 2-D time-spreading wavelength-hopping optical code division multiple access systems under the impact of four-wave mixing (FWM) is presented. The effect of many system parameters such as the transmitted power per chip, code properties, wavelength spacing, and transmission fiber length is investigated. The analysis reveals that the generated FWM light contributes not only as an additional crosstalk component, but also produces as extra three noise terms, namely, signal-FWM, interferer-FWM, and FWM–FWM noise. Theoretical results show the detrimental effect of FWM on the system performance at high chip power levels; resulting in a 4-dB penalty at a power of 15 dBm. Furthermore, the paper presents many aspects useful in the system design.
