# Evaluation of the Performance of Distributed Temperature Measurements With Single-Mode Fiber Using Rayleigh Backscatter up to 1000$^{\circ}{\rm C}$

• Published 2014 in IEEE Sensors Journal

#### Abstract

In this paper, inexpensive single-mode silica optical fibers were interrogated with Luna Innovations' optical backscatter reflectometer to perform distributed temperature measurements at temperatures up to 1000 °C. Measurements of the Rayleigh backscattered signal were taken continuously to determine the amount of light that is backscattered as a function… (More)
