In spectral amplitude-coding optical code-division multiple-access (CDMA) the unipolar codes having fixed in-phase cross-correlation are very important as they are able to eliminate multiuser interference and suppress the phase-induced intensity noise. A novel class of unipolar codes, having ideal in-phase cross-correlation, for spectral-amplitude coding optical CDMA systems based on Steiner systems is proposed. It offers a significant improvement of the system performance with respect to previously reported codes.
