Distributed Temperature Sensor
LiDar Application In DTS
Advantages of DTS
Fiber optic sensors use light as the carrier of information and fiber optics as the medium for transmitting information. Compared with traditional temperature measurement methods, distributed fiber optic temperature measurement has the following advantages:
● No electromagnetic interference, corrosion resistance
● Passive real-time monitoring, sound insulation, explosion-proof
● Small size, lightweight, bendable
● High sensitivity, long service life
● Measuring distance, easy maintenance
Principle Of DTS
DTS uses the Raman effect to measure temperature. The optical laser pulse sent through the fiber causes some scattered light to be reflected on the transmitter side, where the information is analyzed on the Raman principle and the optical time domain reflection (OTDR) localization principle. As the laser pulse propagates through the fiber, several types of scattering are generated, among which the Raman is sensitive to temperature variations, the higher the temperature, the higher the intensity of the reflected light.
The intensity of Raman scattering measures the temperature along the fiber. The Raman anti-Stokes signal changes its amplitude significantly with temperature; the Raman-Stokes signal is relatively stable.
The temperature measurement system consists of a controller (laser source, pulse generator for OTDR or code generator for code correlation or modulator and HF mixer for OFDR, optical module, receiver, and microprocessor unit) and a quartz glass fiber that acts as a wire temperature sensor.
