Abstract

Although the proof of concept of slope-assisted (SA-) Brillouin optical correlation-domain reflectometry (BOCDR) has been demonstrated using silica single-mode optical fibers (SMFs), no reports have been provided on how the performance is affected by use of plastic optical fibers (POFs). In this work, we demonstrate distributed strain and temperature measurements based on SA-BOCDR using POFs. Unlike SMF-based SA-BOCDR, due to the high propagation loss of the POFs, the measurement sensitivity is found to be a function of the sensing location in the POF. We investigate this effect both theoretically and experimentally and present a compensation method for correct distributed measurements along POFs.
