Detecting Hot Spots with a Light Touch
Distributed temperature sensing (DTS) is a great technology for monitoring temperature profiles in structures sensitive to material bulk and/or electrical fields, such as aircraft wings or high-energy particle detectors.
Read the results of this latest collaboration between ID Quantique (IDQ) and HEPIA, a photon-counting Raman-based OTDR scheme. In this work, an arrangement of ultra-precise ID281 SNSPDs and ID900 time-tagging electronics were utilized. These instruments greatly enhanced the experiment’s range and accuracy to achieve unrivalled centimeter-precise temperature mapping over multi-hundred-meter length scales.
