Abstract
We demonstrate a distributed localization of an impact source in the composite cylinder using a home-made phase sensitive optical time domain reflectometer (Φ-OTDR). The system shows the advantages of simple configuration using semiconductor optical amplifier to improve the spectral response of the pump pulses, high spatial resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). With a spatial resolution of 10 m, the SNR could be obtained as high as 6.5 dB. A composite cylinder is longitudinally divided in multiple sections of equal lengths by bending the sensing fibers around it at different locations, and the section of a source impact is localized using the time-delay of the signal detected by the sensing fibers.
