Abstract
The induced loss in optical fibers during "in situ" radiation as well as fiber recovery after the irradiator has been shut down is influenced by several factors. These factors include material composition of the optical preform, which implies both core and cladding of the fiber, and the fiber draw conditions. In addition to the material characteristics, the system’s environmental parameters such as temperature, operating wavelength, total ionizing radiation dose, and radiation dose rate are also factors. Our research has addressed radiation test results, both "in situ" and after radiation, on single mode fibers operating at 1300 and 1550 nanometers. This research investigates the damage mechanisms associated with optical preforms with and without phosphorus in the cladding and with enriched oxygen in the core. Fiber drawing conditions also varied.
