Temperature non-uniformity in distributed temperature sensors

X. Bao, David J. Webb, David A. Jackson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A study is presented of the effects of temperature non-uniformity in a distributed temperature sensor based on the temperature dependence of Brillouin gain in an optical fibre. The form of the Brillouin gain profile for a given temperature distribution is measured and successfully modelled.
