Abstract: We experimentally demonstrate the simultaneous detection of 10-Gbit/s quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) × 2-channel Fourier-encoded synchronous optical code division multiplexing (FE-SOCDM) signals using a digital coherent receiver, for the first time. First, we analytically verify that simultaneous detection can be achieved with an N-point discrete Fourier transform (DFT) using digital signal processing (DSP) because the N-channel Fourier encoding corresponds to an N × N inverse DFT, then the operation is experimentally confirmed. Simultaneous detection of 10-Gbit/s QPSK × 2-channel FE-SOCDM signals is evaluated. The proposed scheme dramatically expands the capability of OCDM systems.
