Paper Abstract

A simple physical description of the nonlinear optical interaction based on Brillouin echoes is presented. This technique makes potentially possible distributed Brillouin sensing down to centimeter spatial resolution while preserving the narrowband feature of the natural Brillouin gain spectrum. Experimental conditions for the generation of Brillouin echoes are described and demonstrations of distributed measurements using a 1 ns (10 cm) pulse are presented.
