Fundamentals of Optical Fiber Sensing Schemes Based on Coherent Optical Time Domain Reflectometry: Signal Model Under Static Fiber Conditions


The paper develops a statistical model for the signals received in phase-sensitive optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR) probed by highly coherent sources. The backscattering process is modelled by a set of discrete scatterers with properly chosen parameters. Explicit equations for calculating the amplitude and the phase of the backscattered signal are… (More)
