Paper Abstract

The continued development of photon counting optical time domain reflectometry has been aided by the advent of more efficient and sensitive detectors. To date, photon counting has generally been reserved for specialized applications requiring sophisticated experimental equipment and instrumentation. This paper reviews recent developments which reduce both the cost and complexity of the equipment required and describes an applications of the technique to high resolution distribution sensing.
