Brillouin Sensors

Brillouin Sensing

Brillouin sensors make use of the effect of light scattering in an optical waveguide caused by the presence of acoustic waves. The scattering is dependent on the frequency of the acoustic wave and shifts the frequency of the light appropriately. Spectral analysis of the scattered light highlights the frequencies at which acoustic waves are dominant and these can be correlated to temperature and/or strain that is applied to the fiber. AMS Technologies’ Brillouin sensors excel with the longest reach and highest spatial resolution available on the market.
