This paper theoretically and experimentally demonstrates that our proposed method improves the carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR) of subcarriers and significantly increases the number of acceptable optical signals in subcarrier multiple access (SCMA) systems using distributed feedback laser diodes (DFB-LD's) with the same center optical frequency. This method reduces optical beat interference by using the multiplied product of the subcarriers and a low-frequency signal. From the experimental results using 1.3 μm DFB-LD's, the CNR sufficiently satisfies the required level even if the number of optical signals is three. Theoretically, the number of acceptable optical signals increases as LD's with wider optical line-width or with greater chirp coefficient are used. For example, assuming a laser chirp coefficient of 540 MHz/mA, the maximum number of LD's that can be used while still meeting the minimal CNR requirement is 12. This number corresponds to 66 optical beat interferences. Thus, this proposed beat-interference reduction technique is very effective in SCMA systems using DFB-LD's without optical frequency control
