Abstract
A method for reconstructing the vibration waveform from the optical time-domain backscattering pulses in the distributed optical fiber sensing system (DOFSS) is proposed, which allows for extracting and recovering the external vibration signal from the tested pulses by analog signal processing, so that can obtain vibration location and waveform simultaneously. We establish the response model of DOFSS to the external vibration and analyze the effects of system parameters on the operational performance. The main parts of the DOFSS are optimized, including delay fiber length and wavelength, to improve the sensitivity of the system. The experimental system is set up and the vibration amplitudes and reconstructed waveforms are fit well with the original driving signal. The experimental results demonstrate that the performance of vibration waveform reconstruction is good with SNR of 15 dB whenever the external vibrations with different intensities and frequencies exert on the sensing fiber.
