Paper Abstract

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has established a radiation standard working group under the auspices of the E13.09 subcommittee on fiber optics, which reports to the E13 committee on molecular spectroscopy. The goal of this working group is to develop and publish standards to qualify fiber optic spectroscopic systems for use in adverse nuclear environments. These goals are in line with the charter of the ASTM organization that is `the development of standards on characteristics and performance of materials, products, systems and services; and the promotion of related knowledge.' Under preliminary efforts to promote the use of fiber optic spectroscopic systems in adverse nuclear environments with an emphasis on nuclear waste storage facilities and nuclear generating stations, two draft standard guides have been prepared to measure ionizing radiation induced spectral changes in optical fibers and cables for use in Broadband systems and remote Raman fiber optic spectroscopic systems.
