In this paper we have proposed a novel multi-user interference (MUI) cancellation scheme for OCDMA systems employing prime code families. We have also discussed in detail the feasibility and implementation of this novel scheme. In addition, the performance analysis of a few prime code families are evaluated experimentally using this newly proposed MUI cancellation scheme. The results reveal that the proposed scheme is easy to implement and totally removes the MUI effect.
