    When Rover introduced document management in early 1994, it justified the project simply on the basis of providing an engineering drawing database. The system was designed to allow the print room to scan engineering drawings so that users could access them from the desktop rather than having to request hard copy prints. One enhancement, an improved document management release process, was initiate... View full abstract»

    Escalating transmission rates in telecoms networks are the spur behind an international research effort in optical processing. The author reports on the work of the BT researchers who are laying the foundations for a new era of photon-based switching systems. The work is based on an interferometric switch known as the TOAD. The TOAD is a variant of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Light enters the i... View full abstract»
