The light is injected in the sensing optical fiber and in the reference optical fiber. A first phase difference is measured between light at the first wavelength emanating from the sensing optical fiber and light at the first wavelength emanating from the reference optical fiber. In addition, a second phase difference is measured between light at the second wavelength emanating from the sensing optical fiber and light at the second wavelength emanating from the reference optical fiber. A measurement result is based on a difference between the first phase difference and the second phase difference that have been measured.
