Data Centers are centralized facilities used for the storage, processing, management, and dissemination of large amounts of data. These facilities typically house servers, networking equipment, and other infrastructure components to support the computing needs of organizations, cloud services, and various online applications.


Distributed Acoustic Sensing for Datacenter Optical Interconnects using Self-Homodyne Coherent Detection

We demonstrate distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) over a bidirectional datacenter link which uses self-homodyne coherent detection for the data signal. Frequency multiplexing allows sharing the optoelectronic hardware, and enables DAS as an auxiliary function.
