Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    In this paper, a pulse-shift technique, which divides every time slot (or chip) into equal-width sub-chips, is used to model the effect of fiber temperature fluctuations in incoherent optical code-division multiple-access (O-CDMA) systems. With the advance in all-optical thresholding technology, power detection of ultrashort optical pulses is possible. This paper also formulates a new pulse-power-detection model for incoherent OCDMA and applies it to the analysis of the pulse-shift technique as a case study. Numerical studies and computer simulations are presented to validate the new analytical model. Our study presents a more realistic theoretical model of all-optical thresholding in incoherent O-CDMA and results in better performance than the conventional pulse-energy-detection model.
