In this letter, we propose combinatorial and search construction methods of 2-D multi-weight optical orthogonal codes (OOCs) with autocorrelation 0 and crosscorrelation 1, called multi-weight single or no pulse per row (MSNPR) codes. An upper bound on the size of MSNPR codes is derived and the performance of MSNPR codes is compared to those of other OOCs in terms of the bit error rate (BER) and evaluated using blocking probability. It is also demonstrated that the MSNPR codes can be flexibly constructed for different applications, providing the scalability to optical CDMA networks.
