This paper presents a two-dimensional optical code division multiple access (2-D-OCDMA) scheme using multiwavelength pulse modulation (MWPM), double optical hard limiters (DHL), and modified carrier-hopping prime sequences (MCHP) to increase the achievable system capacity. Design criteria to reduce multiaccess interference (MAI) are established and indicate that suitable signature sequences for 2-D-OCDMA/MWPM must have good cross-correlation property in terms of both time shift and wavelength shift. Performance analysis of 2-D-OCDMA/MWPM/DHL systems in the presence of MAI and photo detector shot noise is developed. Simulation and analytical results are in very good agreement and indicate that the proposed 2-D-OCDMA/MWPM/DHL systems using MCHP sequences can offer a much larger capacity than others, suitable for applications in broadband fiber-optic access networks.
