Abstract
Optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR) is a very useful tool used in optical fibre communications and in sensor networks. The cost of an OTDR instrument prohibits sometimes its use in fibre optic sensor networks. Desforges et al presented a scheme that allows the monitoring of 10 to 50 on/off microswitches along a fibre in industrial environments using retroreflected light.
