All optical architectures for Wavelet Packet Division Multiplexing (WPDM) are presented, that can be used in multiple access networks to increase the number of simultaneous users. Wavelet waveform coding spreads data signals both in time and frequency domains, with a large capacity improvement with respect to standard Optical-Code Division Multiple Access (O-CDMA) systems. In addition, the orthogonal property of the wavelet atoms ensures low InterSymbol Interference (ISI) and Multiple Access Interference (MAI) noises. To exploit the large bandwidth capacity of optical fibres, the Optical-Electrical-Optical (O-E-O) conversion is completely avoided, and we designed an all optical system that realizes the WPDM fully in the optical domain. A single Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) device multiplies/demultiplies N different users and a diffractive or an integrated optical device performs the waveform coding/decoding. The Wavelet Packet (WP) encoder/decoder is realized as a tree of lattice-form delay-line filters, and can be integrated on a single device along with the optical waveform modulator, resulting in a compact planar optical system. In addition, we show that different choices of WP encoders/decoders are possible to further enhance the system performances.
