Cyclic codes over an infinite family of rings are defined. The general properties of cyclic codes over these rings are studied, in particular nontrivial one-generator cyclic codes are characterized. It is also proved that the binary images of cyclic codes over these rings under the natural Gray map are binary quasi-cyclic codes of index 2k . Further, several optimal or near optimal binary codes are obtained from cyclic codes over Rk via this map.
