Abstract
We describe an approach to the interrogation of fiber sensor arrays over long fiber links which greatly eases the limits on optical power handling capability of the system imposed by Stimulated Brillouin Scattering. The technique relies on matching the coherence properties of the source to the operational characteristics of the interferometric sensors.
