Abstract
As part of a measuring program that should give us a survey of the radiation sensitivity of present commercial optical fibres we tested four more single mode (SM) and three graded index (GI) fibres at wavelengths of 850 nm (GI fibres only), 1300 nm and 1550 nm. All fibres were exposed to electron pulses of 500 rd, 3 krd, 10 krd and 100 krd as well as to the continuous gamma radiation of a Co-60 source upto 10 krd and 100 krd. At 10 krd additional measurements with fibre temperatures of +100°C and -50°C were made at both irradiation facilities.
