Abstract

Distributed strain sensing with millimeter-order spatial resolution is demonstrated in optical fibers based on Brillouin optical correlation domain analysis. A novel beat lock-in detection scheme is introduced to suppress background noises coming from the reflection of Brillouin pump waves. The Brillouin frequency shifts of 3 mm fiber sections are successfully measured with a theoretical spatial resolution of 1.6 mm.
