To boost the performance of spectral-amplitude coding optical code-division multiple-access (SAC-OCDMA) systems, the need for an effective solution to diminish phase-induced intensity noise (PIIN) is becoming progressively more crucial. In this letter, two PIIN suppression approaches: semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based noise cleaning, and single photodiode detection (SPD) are employed. The performance of the hybrid SOA/SPD scheme is validated through simulation experiments. Our results
