Abstract
We demonstrate both numerically and experimentally the possibility to bring the spatial resolution of Brillouin optical frequency-domain analysis (BOFDA) distributed sensors in the cm-range. The numerical analysis is aimed to understand the effects of acoustic wave modulation on the accuracy of BOFDA systems when operating with submeter spatial resolution. We demonstrate that these effects lead to an error in strain/temperature estimation, which depends on the amount of strain/temperature change, and on the peak searching algorithm applied to the acquired spectra. Experimental measurements of BOFDA traces up to 3.5 GHz, equivalent to 3-cm spatial resolution, are presented and discussed.
