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.

Distortion of the OCDMA auto-correlation width by fiber chromatic dispersion can severely influence incoherent OCDMA transmission based on picosecond multi-wavelength pulses. To the best of our knowledge, we report for the first time the use of SOA for manipulation of the OCDMA auto-correlation consisted of multi-wavelength code carriers in order to provide needed compensation. The OCDMA transmission system was based on two- dimensional wavelength-hopping time-spreading (2D-WH/TS) codes with 8 ps multi-wavelength pulses as the code carriers. Different techniques deploying SOA for auto-correlation width adjustment were investigated and their effectiveness was subsequently verified on the OCDMA transmission through a 17 km long fiber optic testbed connecting Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities.
