Abstract

We report what are believed to be the first measurements of the phase sensitivity of a fiber sensor array using multiple low-gain remotely pumped amplifiers with an interferometric sensor inserted. The measured phase sensitivities for individual rungs average 5.7 µrad<sub>rms</sub>/√Hz and exhibit no dependence on rung number, in agreement with predictions.
