Abstract

A distributed fiber strain and vibration sensor which effectively combines Brillouin optical time-domain reflectometry and polarization optical time-domain reflectometry is proposed. Two reference beams with orthogonal polarization states are, respectively, used to perform the measurement. By using the signal obtained from either reference beam, the vibration of fiber can be measured from the polarization effect. After combining the signals obtained by both reference beams, the strain can be measured from the Brillouin effect. In the experiment, 10 m spatial resolution, 0.6 kHz frequency measurement range, 2.5 Hz frequency resolution, and 0.2 MHz uncertainty of Brillouin frequency measurement are realized for a 4 km sensing distance.
