Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a BOTDA sensor based on the use of the Brillouin phase-shift that performs measurements tolerant to non-local effects. This technique raises opportunities to increase the distance covered by these sensors and the maximum optical power of the probe wave injected to the fiber. As a result, the system has the potential to increase the SNR achieved at the last meters of the fiber. Proof-of-concept experiments demonstrate unaltered measurements of the phase-shift spectrum in a 20Km long fiber for large frequency-dependent distortions of the pump pulse.
