Abstract
A one-dimensional Fourier transform of a Rayleigh backscattering traces matrix along the traces direction method has been proposed to simultaneously extract location and frequency information of vibration in the distributed vibration sensing system based on phase-sensitive optical time domain reflectometry. Meanwhile, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the proposed method also can be improved as the signals are processed in the frequency domain since in the frequency domain, noise is “slow change” compared with the vibration. Then, experiments on two-point vibrations have been done. An SNR of 9.5 dB was achieved, and the spatial resolution is also improved to 3.7 m with a 50 ns pulse width and 2.7 km long fiber owing to the improved SNR.
