Paper Abstract

Polarization maintaining fibers hardened against fission neutron irradiation will be an essential element to future DoD and DoE applications which will include optical processing systems, inertial measurement devices, and sensors. This paper reports on the effects of prompt neutron fluence on the orthogonal components of an optical signal transmitted through a polarization maintaining fiber.
