25 February 1993 Enhanced radiation resistance of high-OH silica optical fibers
Author Affiliations +
High purity, high-OH, silica optical fibers were irradiated in a hydrogen atmosphere to explore hydrogen binding into defects created by the ionizing radiation. Significant improvements in subsequent measurements of steady state radiation-induced attenuation were observed. Transient and steady state radiation-induced attenuations and long term stability of the phenomena were evaluated.
