Abstract

We demonstrate an optical-time-domain reflectometer operating at λ = 1.3 μm. It features a spatial resolution of better than 5 cm and enough sensitivity to detect the Rayleigh scattering at the same resolution when operated with a low-power semiconductor laser. Field operation of the instrument is discussed.
