This thesis was a continuance study on the feasibility of implementing a code division multiple access scheme which utilizes optical fiber delay lines. This report explores pseudo-orthogonal address codes with a periodic correlation properties for on-off signaling. The optical functions such as code sequence generation and correlation are performed by parallel optic delay lines acting as encoders and decoders. This experiment shows the desired auto-correlation and cross-correlation properties of these codes and their use in FO-CDMA. The results were recorded and analyzed. This scheme allows for a large population of simultaneously communicating users on a single network unit and allows enhanced flexibility in the scope of services that a local area server can provide.
