A novel fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor configuration using three broadband light sources of different wavelength bands for the interrogation of FBG sensors distributed over 75 km of fiber is proposed and demonstrated. Rayleigh backscattering was reduced and a 60-dB effective dynamic range was demonstrated.
