Monitoring further with precision and speed
Distributed fiber optic sensing presents unique features that have no match in conventional sensing techniques. The ability to measure temperatures and strain at thousands of points along a single fiber is particularly interesting for the monitoring of large structures such as bridges, pipelines, flow lines, oil wells, dams, dikes or railways.
By detecting changes in the amplitude, frequency and phase of light scattered along a fiber, one can realize a distributed fiber sensor for measuring localized temperature, strain, vibration and birefringence over lengths ranging from meters to one hundred kilometers.
Acqiris has experience in Rayleigh, Brillouin (BDTS) and Raman scatterings in fibers to monitor internal stresses and strains, in DAS or DSTS applications.
