    In this paper we present the recursive expressions for calculating the spectral intensity codes for an OCDMA system based on cascaded MZIs. Since the sets of orthogonal codes are not unique for a specific number of sections, we present a general expression for all the possible sets of codes that might lead to a different performance of the system. We also present a general analytic expression for the SNR by calculating the psd of optical beat noise, making a framework for more thorough analysis of the system.
