We present interleave division multiple access (IDMA) scheme combined with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) for passive optical network, which offers improved transmission performance and good chromatic dispersion tolerance. The interleavers are employed to separate different users and the generated chips are modulated on OFDM subcarriers. The feasibility of IDMA-OFDM-PON is experimentally verified with a bitrate of 3.3 Gb/s per user. Compared with OFDMA, IDMA-OFDM offers 8 and 6 dB gains in term of receiver sensitivity in the cases of 2 and 4 users, respectively.
