We studied Brillouin gain spectrum characteristics in dispersion-shifted fibers having compound GeO2-doping compositions in the fiber core to realize simultaneous measurement of distributed strain and temperature. Due to various dopant concentration alongside the radius of tested nonzero dispersion-shifted fibers several multiple Brillouin scattering resonances were observed in the stimulated Brillouin spectra arose through backscattering on higher acoustic modes which propagated along the fiber axis. As a result of the varying acoustic velocities, the Brillouin resonance peaks featured different temperature coefficients which can be used to accomplish the simultaneous measurement of fiber strain and temperature. We presented our first measurement results for NZDS Fujikura and LEAF Corning fiber and discussed the superior sensory suitability of the former fiber types.
