Abstract

We study the principle of correlation-based distributed generation and readout of dynamic grating spectrum generated in stimulated Brillouin scattering in a polarization-maintaining optical fiber. The experimental validation is demonstrated by applying synchronous sinusoidal frequency modulations to two orthogonally polarized laser sources that serve as the Brillouin pump–probe light and readout light of the dynamic grating, respectively. Temperature-induced opposite changes in the Brillouin frequency shift and in the birefringence-determined optical frequency deviation are clearly observed with 1.2 m spatial resolution and a 110 m measurement range.
