Y. Mizuno, N. Hayashi, H. Fukuda, and K. Nakamura, “Single-end-access distributed strain sensing with wide dynamic range using higher-speed Brillouin optical correlation-domain reflectometry,” Jpn. J. Appl. Phys., vol. 56, no. 7, 072501 (2017).

Single-end-access real-time fiber-optic distributed strain sensing has recently been demonstrated using an ultrahigh-speed configuration of Brillouin optical correlation-domain reflectometry (BOCDR). Its extremely high sampling rate was, however, achieved at the cost of a limited strain dynamic range (< 0.2 %). Here, by employing a noise-floor compensation technique, we develop a new cost-effective higher-speed configuration of BOCDR with a wide strain dynamic range (up to 2.0 %; evaluated by static strain measurement). This value is larger than that of any other BOCDR configuration. Using this configuration, we demonstrate some fundamental distributed strain measurements and breakage detection.
