We propose and experimentally demonstrate the use of cyclic pulse coding to improve the performance of hybrid Raman/fiber Bragg grating (FBG) fiber-optic sensors, for simultaneous measurement of distributed static temperature and discrete dynamic strain over the same sensing fiber. Effective noise reduction is achieved in both Raman optical time-domain reflectometry and dynamic interrogation of time-division-multiplexed fiber FBG sensors, enhancing the sensing range resolution and providing real-time point dynamic strain measurement capabilities. The highly integrated sensor scheme employs broadband apodized low-reflectivity FBGs, a single narrowband optical source, and a shared receiver block.
