Distributed acoustic sensor based on a two-mode fiber

A distributed optical fiber dynamic strain sensor also known as a distributed acoustic sensor (DAS) based on two-mode fiber is demonstrated. By using φ-OTDR interrogation technique, the backscattered light from higher order modes can be used to fully quantify vibrations along the sensing fiber. In addition, by combining the results obtained from different modes, 2.52dB improvement in noise floor is achieved. These results confirm that few-mode fibers can be used for DAS applications.

Abstract

A distributed optical fiber dynamic strain sensor also known as a distributed acoustic sensor (DAS) based on two-mode fiber is demonstrated. By using φ-OTDR interrogation technique, the backscattered light from higher order modes can be used to fully quantify vibrations along the sensing fiber. In addition, by combining the results obtained from different modes, 2.52dB improvement in noise floor is achieved. These results confirm that few-mode fibers can be used for DAS applications.
