Paper Abstract

Radiation-induced losses of SpecTran and Corning optical fibers were measured in a proton beam at the UC Davis Cyclotron facility. The tests were conducted at different temperatures in the range 150 degrees Celsius to minus 150 degrees Celsius. The paper discusses the measurement setup, the environmental control equipment and the results. A comparison with prior data and theoretical models is presented.
