1 December 1979 Optical Fiber Waveguides In Radiation Environments
Author Affiliations +
A review of the behavior of state-of-the-art low loss optical fiber waveguides in both pulsed and steady state radiation environments is given. The influence on radiation-induced transmission loss due to experimental parameters such as total dose, dose rate, time after irradiation, temperature, wavelength, injection conditions, light intensity and radiation history, and materials parameters such as OH and impurity content and dopant type and concentration is described. Data are reported for both step and graded index doped silica core fibers and glass clad and polymer clad silica core fibers. Candidate fibers for deployment in certain specific, limited nuclear environments are identified.
