Abstract
Optical fibers are being considered for many space applications because of their high data rate capability, reduced weight over conventional transmission media and lower operating power requirements. In utilizing optical fibers in space environments, the effects of ionizing radiation on performance must be characterized. This characterization entails understanding the relationship between fiber parameters, the environment and system dependent parameters. Data highlighting some of these relationships is presented for many contemporary fibers.
