Abstract
A high temperature (200'C rating) fiber optic cable of fluorocarbon, silica- based glass, and polyimide coating, 100 um core was evaluated for Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) applications. Testing was performed to evaluate attenuation characteristics of the cables during environmental stresses and exposure to Co-60 gamma radiation. The cables passed environmental tests, but after irradiation failed the established delta limit of 3 dB at 10 krads for a wavelength of 850 nm and 100 krads for a wavelength of 1300 nm.
