Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

The performance of a ring-resonator based passive wavelength router, suitable for optical networking at chip level, is evaluated through bit error rate measurements in single channel 10 Gb/s and 3-channel 10 Gb/s WDM configurations. As the routing path involves a different number of routing elements, depending on the wavelength used for the propagating signal, the performance of three output ports with respect to a specified input one are experimentally evaluated and discussed. Measurements show that low rejection on the filter elements due to fabrication issues mostly affect the channel on the through path with respect to the dropped ones.
