Theoretical bounds for the bit error rate for SAC OCDMA balanced detectors with multiple photodiodes

In this paper, we derive the theoretical lower and upper bounds for bit error rate (BER) for spectral amplitude coding OCDMA balanced detector (BD) employing multiple photodiodes. The purpose of this study is to find the maximum performance …
