Abstract
Distributed temperature sensing based on time-correlated two-photon excited fluorescence (TPF) in doped optical fibre is described. Counter-propagating laser pulses generate a TPF flash at the position of their overlap which is scanned along the fibre by a variable mutual delay. The flash is transmitted to one end where it is detected and analysed to yield the temperature from its thermal dependence. As the fluorescence power is shown to be completely independent of excitation pulse duration and temporal profile, the sensor does not require an ultrashort pulse excitation source for operation. With the length of the sensed position depending only on pulse duration, there is also potential for high spatial resolution.
