2-laser injection-locking configuration for Brillouin fibre sensors

We propose in this paper a novel method for generating the pump and probe signals for a Brillouin fibre sensor. It is based on the injection locking of two distinct semiconductor lasers, that makes possible the generation of high purity beat signals in the microwave frequency range. Such a technique can be used either in the pulsed pump-probe technique or the new correlation-based technique. Furthermore novel devices, such as laser modules presenting integrated electro-absorption modulators, can be exploited for achieving efficient and cost effective injection locking schemes
