Open Access research shaping international environmental governance...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content exploring environmental law and governance, in particular the work of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) based within the School of Law.

SCELG aims to improve understanding of the trends, challenges and potential solutions across different interconnected areas of environmental law, including capacity-building for sustainable management of biodiversity, oceans, lands and freshwater, as well as for the fight against climate change. The intersection of international, regional, national and local levels of environmental governance, including the customary laws of indigenous peoples and local communities, and legal developments by private actors, is also a signifcant research specialism.

Abstract

In a fast changing world where information technology drives economic prosperity, the number of data centres has grown significantly in the past few years. These data centres require large amount of energy in order to meet up with increasing demands. An overview of energy efficient optical interconnects as a means of reducing energy consumption without compromising speed and accuracy was presented. New methods by which energy efficiency can be achieved using OCDMA multiplexing techniques for future optical interconnections were discussed. We also presented some challenges that might inhibit effective implementation of the OCDMA multiplexing scheme.
