Paper Abstract

The radiation-induced loss of short lengths (10 cm) of a lead-glass fiber is determined on-line during irradiation by Co-60 radiation as a function of time at different temperatures and dose rates. A phenomenological model describing the creation and relaxation of the color centers during and after irradiation allows an analytical function of time, temperature, and dose rate to be fitted with the experimental data. The measured values of a fiber-optic sensor using this function as a calibration curve show good agreement with the nominal value of the dose rate within the experimental accuracy.
