Paper Abstract

Consideration is given to a new optical-fibre technique for the measurement of the spatial distribution of physical fields (e.g. magnetic field, electric field, temperature, mechanical stress, etc.). The technique relies upon the time-resolution of light backscattered from a pulse propagating in a monomode optical fibre to measure the spatial distribution of the fibre's polarization properties. These properties are modified by the field under investigation.
