Brillouin scattering in an optical fiber can be used as distributed sensing mechanism for strain and/or temperature. With correlation domain techniques, mm-order spatial-resolution, kHz-order sampling-rate, random-accessibility, and discriminative-measurement of strain and temperature have been realized.
