Abstract

We present a technique for dynamic strain measurements in optical fibers based on the stimulated Brillouin scattering interaction between two counterpropagating optical pulses. The technique allows for a high sampling rate and permits to addressing dynamically and randomly the position at which vibration is measured. Preliminary experimental results carried out with a perturbation frequency up to 98Hz demonstrate the validity of the proposed technique.
