Abstract
Radiation-induced transmission loss in Low Water Peak Single Mode (LWPSM) fiber has been investigated. Formation and conversion processes of defect centers also have been proposed using electron spin resonance in the fiber irradiated with gamma rays. When the irradiation dose is low, Germanium electron center (GEC) and self-trapped hole center (STH) occur. With the increase of dose, E’ centers (Si and Ge) and nonbridge oxygen hole centers (NBOHCs) generate. With the help of thermal-bleaching or photo-bleaching, the radiation-induced loss of pre-irradiation optical fiber can be reduced effectively. The obtain results also have been analyzed in detail.
