Abstract
We discuss radiation test results on 1.55 micrometers , polarization maintaining fiber from two sources. One fiber employs stress induced birefringence, the other is an elliptical waveguide that achieves birefringence through a geometrical shaping of the core. Testing was conducted in accordance with FOTP-64 at the SEGIT Facility at the Defense Microelectronics Activity, Sacramento, CA. Overall dose rate was approximately 10.5 kilorads/min (SiO2) for a total dose of 10 Megarads (SiO2) at temperatures of -55, +23 and +125 degree(s)C.
