Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

The generation of cw Terahertz radiation from photomixing in low-temperature grown GaAs is limited by the thermal load for single emitters. We propose a new heat sinking scheme based on high thermal conductivity, transparent crystalline heat spreaders as diamond in direct contact with the active zone. A first working device based on recessed electrodes is demonstrated and has a significant power dissipation capability of more than 0.75W (average). The electrical and terahertz characteristics are analyzed.
