A photon-counting-based iterative parallel interference cancellation (PIC) scheme for free-space opticalcommunications in the presence of multiple-access interference, shot noise, background radiation, and turbulence fading is designed. An efficient chip-level iterative equivalent noise estimation algorithm is also derived. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme can achieve a single-user performance,bound with the fast convergence property. More importantly, it can eliminate the bit-error rate floor of the conventional optical code-division multiple-access system with the aid of a relatively short spreading code length.
