Novel optical fibre distributed temperature sensor based on the Landau-Placzek ratio

Lees, Gareth P., Wait, Peter and Newson, Trevor P. (1997) Novel optical fibre distributed temperature sensor based on the Landau-Placzek ratio In Proceedings of Optical Fiber Sensors. Optical Society of America..

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We report our latest results on a compact, diode pumped optical fibre distributed temperature sensor based on Brillouin scattering. A high power, short pulse Q-switched Erbium/Ytterbium fibre laser and a double pass in-fibre Mach-Zehnder interferometer make this Brillouin distributed temperature sensor an attractive commercial device. A spatial and temperature resolution of 10 metres and + or - 1.7°C has been demonstrated
