Abstract
A novel distributed fiber birefringence, strain and temperature measurement based on homodyne Brillouin optical time domain reflectometry (BOTDR) is proposed. Birefringence measurement is based on the beat period detection of Brillouin beat of the same acoustic mode. Strain and temperature are obtained by measuring the power changes of Brillouin beat spectrum (BBS), which corresponds to the optical interaction of different acoustic modes in a complex profile fiber. The birefringence of a 4.3 km large-effective-area fiber (LEAF) was measured with 0.6-m spatial resolution, and strain and temperature at the end of a 4.5 km LEAF were measured at 1.5-m resolution in 140s.
