High-Performance Raman-Based Distributed Fiber-Optic Sensing Under a Loop Scheme Using Anti-Stokes Light Only

A distributed fiber-optic temperature sensor technique inherently allowing for system calibration, compensating time-dependent variations of the fiber losses as well as local external perturbations, is proposed using a loop-scheme together with Raman anti-Stokes-only measurement. A temperature resolution enhancement with respect to a standard loop configuration is shown by experiments, providing a robust and reliable high-performance sensing technique for long sensing ranges.
