This paper presents a novel scheme to generate and detect Brillouin dynamic grating in a polarization-maintaining optical fiber based on one laser source. Precise measurement of Brillouin dynamic grating spectrum is achieved benefiting from that the pump, probe and readout waves are coherently originated from the same laser source. Distributed discrimination of strain and temperature is also achieved with high accuracy.
