The impact of a differential group delay (DGD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) on multi-wavelength picosecond code carriers used by two-dimensional wavelength-hopping time-spreading coding schemes in optical code division multiple access (2D-WH/TS OCDMA systems is investigated. Based on experimental data collected over ten days on a 111 km long commercially used fiber link PMD and DGD parameters are determined and used to find the code carriers temporal broadening. This information is then used to calculate the 2D-WH/TS OCDMA system performance degradation as a function of varying number of simultaneous users for different DGD.
