Nanoparticle characterization based on STM and STS.
Here, d denotes the distance between tip and sample, V the applied voltage and E the energy One of the major problems in STM/STS is its surface sensitivity. I was wondering how is the relationship between STS and STM. Chem Soc Rev. Feb 21;44(4) doi: /c4csk. Nanoparticle characterization based on STM and STS. Kano S(1), Tada T, Majima Y.
Software running on a 'network management system terminal' e. The main functions of network management thereby include: Network and network-element provisioning In order to allocate bandwidth throughout a network, each network element must be configured.
Performance management Network elements have a very large set of standards for performance management. The performance-management criteria allow not only monitoring the health of individual network elements, but isolating and identifying most network defects or outages.
Higher-layer network monitoring and management software allows the proper filtering and troubleshooting of network-wide performance management, so that defects and outages can be quickly identified and resolved. Consider the three parts defined above: This interface can also be attached to a console serverallowing for remote out-of-band management and logging. This is for local management of that network element and, possibly, remote management of other SONET network elements.
Generally, section overhead regenerator section in SDH is used. To handle all of the possible management channels and signals, most modern network elements contain a router for the network commands and underlying data protocols. Nevertheless, as network architectures have remained relatively constant, even newer equipment including multi-service provisioning platforms can be examined in light of the architectures they will support. Thus, there is value in viewing new, as well as traditional, equipment in terms of the older categories.
Regenerator[ edit ] Traditional regenerators terminate the section overhead, but not the line or path. Regenerators extend long-haul routes in a way similar to most regenerators, by converting an optical signal that has already traveled a long distance into electrical format and then retransmitting a regenerated high-power signal.
Since the late s, regenerators have been largely replaced by optical amplifiers. Also, some of the functionality of regenerators has been absorbed by the transponders of wavelength-division multiplexing systems.
Synchronous optical networking
STS multiplexer and demultiplexer[ edit ] STS multiplexer and demultiplexer provide the interface between an electrical tributary network and the optical network. Add-drop multiplexer[ edit ] Add-drop multiplexers ADMs are the most common type of network elements.
Traditional ADMs were designed to support one of the network architectures, though new generation systems can often support several architectures, sometimes simultaneously. ADMs traditionally have a high-speed side where the full line rate signal is supportedand a low-speed side, which can consist of electrical as well as optical interfaces.
Synchronous optical networking - Wikipedia
The low-speed side takes in low-speed signals, which are multiplexed by the network element and sent out from the high-speed side, or vice versa. Advanced DCSs can support numerous subtending rings simultaneously.
These architectures allow for efficient bandwidth usage as well as protection i. Switching is based on the line state, and may be unidirectional with each direction switching independentlyor bidirectional where the network elements at each end negotiate so that both directions are generally carried on the same pair of fibers. Unidirectional path-switched ring[ edit ] In unidirectional path-switched rings UPSRstwo redundant path-level copies of protected traffic are sent in either direction around a ring.Introducing NEXO's STM modules
A selector at the egress node determines which copy has the highest quality, and uses that copy, thus coping if one copy deteriorates due to a broken fiber or other failure. UPSRs tend to sit nearer to the edge of a network, and as such are sometimes called collector rings. Any other nodes on the ring could only act as pass-through nodes.

Bidirectional line-switched ring[ edit ] Bidirectional line-switched ring BLSR comes in two varieties: BLSRs switch at the line layer. Rather, the ring nodes adjacent to the failure reroute the traffic "the long way" around the ring on the protection fibers.
BLSRs trade cost and complexity for bandwidth efficiency, as well as the ability to support "extra traffic" that can be pre-empted when a protection switching event occurs. In four-fiber ring, either single node failures, or multiple line failures can be supported, since a failure or maintenance action on one line causes the protection fiber connecting two nodes to be used rather than looping it around the ring.
A coarse drive not shown allows for coarse positioning of the tip with respect to the sample. By using the piezo the tip is positioned in close proximity sub- or lower nm-range in z-direction to the sample 3 to enable tunneling. For this, a bias voltage is applied between tip and sample. The tip is scanned over the sample's surface in x- and y-direction by applying the appropriate voltages to the piezo.
Here, either the current is kept constant by keeping a constant local sample-tip distance and the tip's absolute height is changed accordingly constant current mode or vice versa constant height mode.
This, of course, happens computer controlled 5.

The resulting image 4 is constructed from the known displacement of the tip. This scheme was taken from the web but I forgot the source's location. Nonetheless, I thank the author. Spectroscopy For spectroscopy, the tip is kept at a predefined position constant x and y and the feedback loop of the STM controller is opened constant z.
