Abstract

A block-ciphered (M-ary) optical code division multiplexing (OCDM) can provide larger security than a conventional OCDM system based on bit ciphering. We propose a polarization multiplexed (POL-MUX) M-ary OCDM system and demonstrated 2.5 Gbps, POL-MUX 256 ( = 16X16)-ary OCDM transmission using a single multi-port optical encoder/decoder (E/D). We show that this architecture reduces the number of required optical codes and enhances the system confidentiality. © 2010 Optical Society of America.
