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

Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) optical reflectors have become used for encoding and decoding optical code division multiple assess (OCDMA) data. We observed that only about 20% of the power that enters into an optical FBG en/decoder is reflected and the remaining 80% is not used in the en/decoding process. We present a novel architecture that will enable both cost and energy efficiency in the process of generating optical CDMA codes. The architecture achieves effective utilization of available optical power. We have been able to achieve power savings of up to 3dB for a 4-user OCDMA system.
