Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

250-Gb/s self-clocked optical TDM with a polarization-multiplexed clock

Glesk, I. and Prucnal, P. R. (1995) 250-Gb/s self-clocked optical TDM with a polarization-multiplexed clock. Fiber and Integrated Optics, 14 (1). pp. 71-82. ISSN 0146-8030

In this paper we report the first demonstration of all-optical time demultiplexing at 250 Gb/s with self-clocking using polarization multiplexing of the clock and data. To achieve such high speed, an ultra high-speed device known as the Terahertz Optical Asymmetric Demultiplexer (TOAD) is used. We also demonstrate self-clocked address recognition and routing control of a photonic switch at 250 Gb/s. The bit-error rate at the switch output was measured to be less than 10-9.
