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.

Two-dimensional wavelength-hopping time-spreading (2D-WH/TS) codes have been used by number of research groups around the world in their research. Good understanding of 2D-WH/TS codes if they would be based on picosecond multi-color pulses is therefore very important. In this paper we report results of our extensive investigation which has been focused on such codes performance when they were implemented in an OCDMA testbed connecting University of Strathclyde with Glasgow University and running at the data rate of OC-48 (2.5Gb/s). We will show that to maintain desired BER very accurate dispersion management of the transmission link must be maintained at all times. If this requirement is even slightly violated a high penalty in the form of strong BER deterioration will be inflicted.
