Description : Research in optical information technology in Europe has been very active inrecent years. This volume records state-of-the-art research conducted in some 22 laboratories who have worked together within EC ESPRIT Basic Research Action 3199 up to 1992. The topics cover: (1) Active optical logic and switching devices - embracing new materials, nonlinear and electrooptic mechanisms as well as advanced device fabrication. These devices cover the range from all-optical nonlinear interferometer structures through hybrid optical-electronic modulators to integrated emitter-receiver structures. (2) The latest state of optical interconnect technology, embracing diffractive optics (binary and multi-level phase gratings), holographic space-variant elements and micro-refractive optics. (3) Contributions on optical information processing architecture and demonstrator projects. The materials base ranges from silicon to II-VI materials with the realisation of pn-junction devices in ZnSe. The research reported here lays the basis for long-term progress in devices for information processing.
Description : This latest volume of the Register of Educational Research in the United Kingdom lists all the major research projects being undertaken in Britain during the latter months of 1992, the whole of 1993 and 1994 and the early months of 1995. Each entry provides names and addresses of the researchers, a detailed abstract, the source and amount of the grant(where applicable), the length of the project and details of published material about the research.
Description : A survey of products and research projects in the field of highly parallel, optical and neural computers in Japan. The research activities are listed by type of organization, eg universities and public research organizations, and by industry.
Description : Recent developments in the areas of computer databases, simulation games, and expert systems have added a different dimension to the business curriculum. This informative book instructs educators in how information technology can be used in teaching international business to students and business executives. Utilizing New Information Technology in Teaching of International Business includes descriptions and utilization of the state-of-the-art of computer and telecommunications technology, including a variety of computer software packages and international business databases. Examples with step-by-step instructions are included to depict how to use these software packages and databases. Discussions of actual classroom implementation, plus software reviews, provide teachers with the knowledge and incentive to begin to incorporate these new technologies into their classrooms, better preparing students for the realities of the business world. Utilizing New Information Technology in Teaching of International Business can be used as a training tool for business executives who wish to increase their skills in the field of international business. Using this book to train executives is more cost-efficient than hiring consultants or international research companies. Once trained, executives and students will know how to tap into several databases to identify new international markets and obtain up-to-date information about them. Utilizing New Information Technology in Teaching of International Business is useful for courses in international business/management, international marketing, and international accounting. Some of the new technologies covered include: electronic data retrieval services expert systems in international business simulation software in international business personal computer-based databases such as National Trade Data Bank, World Trade Exporter, World Trade, and Disclosure/Worldscope Utilizing New Information Technology in Teaching of International Business helps provide current and future executives with the technological skills needed to gain a competitive advantage in the global market.
