Optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) provides another dimension to multiple access systems, in which each user is assigned a unique code. This allows each subscriber to simultaneously access the medium without any contention. However, simultaneous access of multiple users introduce multiple access interference (MAI) which primarily deteriorates the performance of OCDMA systems. This paper proposes a new code called diagonal double weight (DDW) code to elevate the performance and cardinality of spectral amplitude coding (SAC) OCDMA systems. Performance of our proposed code is evaluated using comprehensive analytical analysis followed by simulation analysis. Examination of bit error rate shows that DDW code along with single photodiode detection technique provides efficient performance, with added benefits of simplified design, large cardinality and ease of implementation.
