High performance Brillouin distributed fibre sensor
We propose a novel configuration for a Brillouin distributed sensor based on Brillouin optical time domain analysis. This new configuration eliminates many intensity noise issues found in previous schemes. Resolution of 3.5 m all over a 47km single-mode fibre was achieved and resolution down to 30 cm in a few kilometre fibre. Noise reduction makes possible measurements with a 16 times averaging.
