A new kind of sensor under development in order to detect high energy x or gamma rays is presented. It is based on an inorganic scintillator optically coupled to a ribbon of fluorescent optical fibers. The basic configuration is briefly described. Investigations of the principal properties of the fluorescent fibers used for the detector are then reported: the fiber attenuation, the influence of long term bending; the emission and excitation spectra; the radiation resistance tested by means of a 60Co source and an 18 MV linear accelerator, etc. A detailed characterization of these fibers has been realized and complete experimental results are presented.
