30cm of spatial resolution using pre-excitation pulse BOTDA technique

Abstract: A pre-excitation pulse technique in Brillouin optical time domain analysis (PP-BOTDA) for enhancement of the spatial resolution is shown. The technique here exposed is based on the pre-excitation of the stimulated Brillouin scattering and the subtraction of the Brillouin scattering due to the intensity dc level present in the optical pulse. A main optical pulse with 3ns of duration followed by a pulse of 40ns and half the intensity of the main one are used for obtaining 30cm of spatial resolution. The spatial range is 3600m on a standard single mode optical fiber.
