Brillouin Loss Based Distributed Temperature Sensor Using a Single Source
We have demonstrated the principle of distributed temperature sensing using the Brillouin loss mechanism with a single laser source. The technique involves the use of a stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) generator to produce down-shifted light.
