Abstract
We propose and demonstrate a novel high-performance 100-km range Brillouin optical time-domain analysis (BOTDA) based on time-division multiplexing. To avoid the limitation of pump depletion or excess amplification in a conventional long-range BOTDA, in our scheme instead of a pulse and a CW wave but two pulses, i. e., a probe pulse and a pump pulse are used to perform the measurement. The delay between the probe and pump pulses can be changed to select the sensing section where the probe pulse interacts with the pump pulse. The measurement of the entire sensing fiber is realized by implementing the measurement for each sensing section through changing the delay between the two pulses. In experiment, a 100-km sensing fiber is divided into 11 sections based on gain-controlled principle, and a spatial resolution of 0.6 m and 2 m are obtained at the end of 75 km and 100 km, respectively.
