Abstract

With the capability of Brillouin Optical Correlation Domain Analysis (BOCDA) technique to probe measurands with millimeter order spatial resolution [1], the idea of combining intensity measurements with BOCDA for high spatial resolution temperature compensated distributed strain sensing has been explored and successfully demonstrated [2, 3]. This paper discusses the advantages of achieving this temperature compensation using Raman [2] or Brillouin intensity measurements [3]. Fig. 1 shows a summary of temperature compensation strain measurements made using Raman/Brillouin intensity in combination with Brillouin frequency based BOCDA. The 131m long sensing fibre comprised a 42m unheated-unstrained section, 14.5m of unstrained section maintained at 52°C, 33m unheated-unstrained section, 3.5m unheated section subject to 1044 µ.epsilon over a fibre strain rig and 38m unheated-unstrained section of standard single mode telecommunications fibre.
