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

A photonic integrated architecture realizing the concept of coupled-resonator dual-mode optical filters is presented. The proposed structure consists of a chain of directly coupled microring resonators with a partial reflector embedded in the last resonator. The contradirectional coupling induced by the reflector makes the effective order of the filter double with respect to the number of coupled resonators. Since the counterpropagating modes share the same physical cavity, the resonant frequencies are intrinsically aligned, sensitivity of the filter to fabrication tolerances is reduced, and control of the structure is eased with respect to coupled resonator filters of the same order. Second-and fourth-order dual-mode filters made of microring resonators loaded with a Bragg grating are experimentally demonstrated on a silicon-on-insulator photonic platform.
