Raman-based distributed temperature sensing (DTS) systems have found widely ranging commercial applications. For extended distance DTS measurement the spatial resolution is sometimes limited through pulse broadening caused by the intermodal dispersion of graded index multimode (GIMM) optical fiber. In this paper we describe the design, manufacturing and performance of a high bandwidth GIMM fiber, with bandwidth optimized at 1550 nm. Using this fiber, we demonstrate distributed temperature measurement with an extended distance of 32 km and spatial resolution of 3 meters. In comparison, the spatial resolution of an OM4 (bandwidth optimized for use at 850 nm) fiber typically used in temperature sensing over 32km is more than 10 meters.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
