Optical fiber distributed acoustic sensor (DAS) and distributed temperature sensor (DTS) are considerably desirable for many important applications including oil and gas industry. Simultaneous measurements of vibration and temperature will exclude the need for two separate DAS and DTS systems, reduce overall cost, and ensure continuous real-time monitoring of these two important sensing parameters. We here devise a hybrid DAS-DTS system using a few-mode fiber (FMF). Although the system requirements for DAS and DTS are quite different, FMF is considered an ideal compromise to satisfy the requirements of the two systems.
