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

Implementing time gating in ultra-high speed OCDMA networks over long distance transmissions will require precise synchronization in order to suppress the influence of timing jitter on the OCDMA receiver. To implement optical gating, an optical clock is needed to control a switching window i.e., “a time gate” to pass the desired autocorrelation peak while blocking the MAI noise. We demonstrate that the use of a network global clock distribution is not necessary if the receiver synchronization is done via optical clock recovery. In our experimental demonstration a wider eye opening with power budget improvement of ∼7.5 dB was achieved when using all-optical clock recovery compare to clock distribution.
