Paper Abstract

Fiberoptic sensors are employed for the measurement of many physical quantities. 1,2 Fiberoptic sensors using glass or lead glass optical fibers have been shown in radiation detectors3,4 or dosimeters.5,6 It has been shown7-9 that the main effect of the interaction of ionizing radiation (typically, ? -rays from a Co60 source) with optical fibers is the increase in the specific optical attenuation (dB/m) of the fiber waveguide due to the radio-induced additional formation of color centers.
