The operation of distributed polarimetric fiber-optical sensors using wavelength scanning technique is discussed along with algorithms for processing of a signal coming form the sensor to retrieve the information about the distribution of external force and field along the fiber. The principle of the sensor operation is based on a change of spectral and polarization characteristics of broad-band radiation, propagating in the fiber, caused by the external influence. The distribution of the external force along the fiber is determined by the computer processing of the output spectrum. The analysis of such sensor and the results of our experiments demonstrate high spatial resolution and sensitivity.
