Abstract

The effect of the finite extinction ratio of an electro-optic modulator (EOM) on the Brillouin frequency measurement of a distributed Brillouin-based fiber optic sensor is studied. An EOM with a finite extinction ratio limits the application of Brillouin optical time domain analysis in a distributed Brillouin-based fiber optic sensor. This results in confusion in specifying the location of the strained region and in error in detecting the Brillouin frequency and hence in strain and temperature measurement.
