Brillouin Sensors

FO Distributed Strain and Temperature Sensor (DSTS)

Key Features

  • Uses standard telecom fiber for simultaneous measurement of temperature and strain
  • Rapid measurement of strain and temperature
  • High spatial, strain, and temperature resolution and accuracy
  • Up to 40 km sensing range
  • Multiple channel monitoring
  • Real-time fault point detection


OZ Optics Foresight™ series of fiber optic distributed strain and temperature sensors (DSTS) are sophisticated sensor systems using Brillouin scattering in optical fibers to measure changes in both temperature and strain along the length of an optical fiber. By wrapping or embedding a fiber inside a structure, such as an oil pipeline or dam, one can detect when the structure is being strained or heated/cooled, and correct the problem before failure occurs. Such monitoring capability is valuable in critical structures where failure could represent loss of lives or millions of dollars.
