Abstract
An 82-km sensing range Brillouin optical time-domain analysis distributed fiber sensor without systematic measurement error is proposed and first experimentally validated, in which the probe wave with two sidebands generates a dual gain-loss Brillouin interaction, giving rise to the remarkable suppressed pump depletion in long sensing range and a relatively narrow Brillouin gain spectrum. Both theoretical analysis and experimental results demonstrate that this technique is capable of accurate long-distance sensing. To the best of our knowledge, it is the simplest technique and does not require extra time for long-distance sensing (>50 km).
