The optical properties of fiber waveguides can be degraded by exposure to nuclear radiation, primarily through the generation of color centers in the fiber core. This paper will review recent studies of the radiation-induced absorption in state-of-the-art fiber optics. Particular emphasis is placed on the development of more radiation resistant pure and doped silica core waveguides and on the understanding of the damage processes in these materials. The results of studies of radiation damage in high birefringent, polarization-maintaining fibers and in heavy metal fluoride glasses and fibers will also be reviewed.
