One of the main challenges of using distributed fiber optic sensing technologies is their sensitivity to both strain and temperature. This paper describes a new development in high-definition distributed fiber optic sensing (based on Rayleigh backscatter and OFDR instrumentation) that provides for the automatic compensation of mechanical strain when measuring distributed temperature, enabling broader adoption of the technology in embedded and surface mounted measurement applications.
