AbstractThis paper presents a distributed fiber optic Brillouin scattering investigation, which involves measuring the Brillouin intensity versus time for real-time temperature measurements. This can be applied in practical fire detection schemes through the use of a threshold temperature that corresponds to the maximum Brillouin intensity. In the experiments, a 11 km fiber length was interrogated by 20 ns pulses (2 m spatial resolution) to monitor the temperature variations in a 10 m fiber region. The corresponding theory has confirmed the suitability of real-time intensity monitoring for temperature measurement.
