Abstract

Recently, there has been a lot of interest in using code-division multiple access (CDMA) for optical fiber communication systems. In this letter, we present a technique for estimating the bit error rate of optical CDMA communication systems employing avalanche photodiode receivers. The proposed technique, which is based on large deviations theory, is featured as a simple, accurate, and flexible method for performance evaluation of such systems.
