We propose employing multi-beam propagating technology to mitigate the influence of atmospheric scintillation to the wireless optical code division multiple access (WOCDMA) system and then deduce the bit error rate (BER) formulas of systems in weak and strong scintillations, respectively. According to simulation experiment results, multi-beam propagation can improve the system performance very well compared with single-beam propagating technique. Moreover, the more beams we use, the better the performance we get. When the received optical power is -30 dBm, the BER of the system employing four beams is 5 and 1 dB lower than that of using single-beam propagating technique in weak and strong scintillations, respectively.
