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

The electrochemiluminescent (ECL) performance of three ruthenium-based metallopolymer platforms with different homogeneous charge transfer diffusion coefficients (DCT) is reported. Significantly, simultaneous detection of light and current in tandem with steady-state photoluminescence studies demonstrate that increasing the rate of Ru3+ production via enhanced charge transport results in a decrease in ECL intensity of up to 82% when the concentration of the co-reactant, sodium oxalate, is low, i.e., sub-mM. Spectroelectrochemical studies demonstrate that for maximum sensitivity to be obtained, the electroactive properties of the polymeric support matrix need to be considered in tandem with luminophore, analyte and co-reactant concentrations.
