Abstract
Nuclear industry shows an increasing interest in the possibilities offered by optical fiber technology. The radiation hardness of many fiber-optic devices still needs to be assessed if optical fiber telecommunication and sensing systems have to be deployed in nuclear facilities. In this paper, we report on recent gamma irradiation experiments on modern fiber optic devices such as special optical fibers, fiber temperature sensors, Bragg gratings and VCSELs. The results indicate that these components can be applied in ionizing radiation environments, even at very high levels of exposure.
