This paper proposes a novel incoherent optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) transceiver design, as a promising network access employing a newly introduced prime code family named as double-padded modified prime code as spreading sequences, based on the 2-D optical modulation scheme deploying frequency and polarization shift keying. Hereafter, it is referred to as F-PolSK. The novel F-PolSK-OCDMA system has been accurately analyzed taking into account the presence of 1) optical amplified spontaneous emission noise; 2) electronic receiver noise; 3) photo-diode shot-noise; and 4) multiple-access interference (MAI). The application of the optical tapped-delay lines at the receiver as a CDMA-decoder has also been investigated. The evaluation of 2-D array modulation in conjunction with OCDMA indicates that the binary combination of this hybrid scheme enhances the overall system performance. The results reveal that the proposed architecture can easily accommodate greater number of users and consume less power as compared with previous schemes. On the other hand, in polarization modulation since the optical beam power is constant, the system has immunity against the self- and cross-phase modulations. Besides, the system security is much enhanced due to 2-D advanced modulation in optical domain.
