Abstract
We introduce a new technique to extend the dynamic range of coherent BOTDA sensors in dynamic measurements. It is based on launching pump pulses containing multiple frequencies so that the Brillouin spectra that they generate overlap, allowing to measure larger Brillouin frequency shift variations. Furthermore, this technique is compared to the procedure of shortening the length of the pulses, which also leads to a broadening of the spectra. We analyze both techniques, obtaining a threefold increase in range up to 400 MHz (±4000 με).
