Double-pass configured fibre Mach-Zehnder interferometric optical filter for distributed fibre sensing
K.de Souza, P.C.Wait and T.P.Newson
A double-pass configured all-fibre Mach-Zehnder interferometric optical filter has been developed and used in a distributed fibre-optic sensor for separation of Rayleigh and Brillouin signals. Its superior performance over a single-pass all-fibre Mach-Zehnder interferometer is highlighted by its 15dB improved rejection of the Rayleigh signal and comparable throughput.
