Abstract
It is known that the strain resolution of fibre laser sensors is determined by frequency noise of the laser sensor element. We compare the frequency noise of a number of distributed feedback fibre laser sensors and find that all exhibit similar dominant 1/f noise below 10kHz. Examination of current theories of thermodynamic noise and 1/f noise in fibre lasers suggests that these lasers may be close to the theoretical limits of strain sensitivity.
