Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

We have developed a demultiplexer known as a Colliding Pulse Mach- Zehnder (CPMZ) suitable for OTDM systems capable of ultrafast all- optical demultiplexing and address recognition. Recently we have demonstrated a polarization and wavelength independent device, called a Terabit Optical Demultiplexer, which is capable of all-optical demultiplexing of Tbit/s pulse train with 650 fJ of switching energy, and which can be integrated on a chip. This device has achieved a 10 ps switching window. Both devices are wavelength compatible with all of the low loss transmission windows of optical fibers.
