Spatial resolution limitation by Rayleigh scattering-induced noise in Brillouin optical correlation-domain reflectometry

Abstract

We theoretically and experimentally show that the modulation amplitude of the laser frequency determining the spatial resolution of Brillouin optical correlation-domain reflectometry can exceed a half of the Brillouin frequency shift, which was the conventional limitation due to the Rayleigh scattering-induced noise.
