Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

Polarization switching (PS) in 1550-nm VCSELs under single and double pulsed polarized optical injection is investigated experimentally and in theory. “Normal” and “reverse” PS were achieved, respectively, when the device was subject to single and double optical injection. Speed operation enhancement is observed for “reverse” PS under double polarized optical injection. Also, the minimum injection power requirements for both “normal” and “reverse” PS have been analyzed showing significant differences for the two investigated cases. Furthermore, we have also investigated numerically the influence of important system parameters, such as the normalized bias current, the injection field strength, and the linewidth enhancement factor in the optimal operation conditions for both types of PS. Overall good agreement between theory and experiments is found.
