Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The need to increase transmission capacity in communication networks is becoming very critical. This task can be accomplished by taking advantage of optical networks where techniques such as DWDM and OTDM are combined with the use of all-optical devices to help eliminate electronic bottlenecks. To fulfill these needs a new class of all-optical devices have been proposed and successfully demonstrated. By taking advantage of the nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor optical amplifiers in combination with optical interferometers new generation of ultrafast all-optical demultiplexers, data regenerators, wavelength, and data format converters have been developed.
