Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

An optical time division multiplexing (OTDM) router, using a highly scalable time slot tuner, is discussed. Channel access in OTDM networks is achieved by using time slot tuners and all-optical demultiplexers. Timing precision of <1 ps is required to tune, multiplex, and demultiplex individual channels within the OTDM frame. An error-free 100 Gbit/s broadcast star architecture that can be used as the backplane for this router is presented. The router scalability based on the time slot tuner is analyzed and shows that the architecture can offer 1 Tbit/s aggregate bandwidth and support over 1000 nodes. This represents an order of magnitude improvement over current state-of-the-art electronic routers.
