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.

A high sensitivity in-band OSNR monitor system integrated on SOI platform is presented. The device exploits a narrow-band microring resonator to select the portion of the channel spectrum that is most sensitive to OSNR variations, and performs an autocorrelation measurement using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The proposed scheme allows in-line OSNR monitoring from 8 dB to 28 dB, with 0.2 dB accuracy.
