Paper Abstract

A new scheme for fast distributed sensing based on Brillouin Optical Time-Domain Analysis (BOTDA) is proposed and demonstrated, based on the use of a frequency swept microwave source for the generation of the probe wave. The entire BOTDA measurement is taken within the duration of the frequency sweep, at a frequency granularity depending on the duration of the sweep, the repetition rate of the pump pulses and the number of averages.
