Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

A vertical-access passive all-optical switching gate has been used to regenerate the zero levels of a “. . . 01010101. . .” 160-Gb/s bit pattern at 1561 nm. Autocorrelation function measurements show that an extinction up to 11.7 dB of the “ghost-pulses” can be achieved.
