Paper Abstract

Measurements were performed on gamma irradiated plastic clad silica (PCS) and all-glass fibers over the temperature range 23°C to -60°C. The effects of temperature, [OH] content and low dose, long term radiation are examined on various fibers. Particular emphasis is placed on the induced optical attenuation and recovery behavior for a carefully controlled sample of PCS fibers.
