Paper Abstract

The effect of steady-state ionizing radiation on glass-clad fiber-optic waveguides is discussed as a function of wavelength and temperature. Doped-silica and pure-silica core fibers are considered. Fibers showing reduced radiation-induced losses are identified for use at various operating wavelengths over a wide range of temperatures. Attention was given to fiber composition and fabrication technique. The radiation effects data are discussed in terms of signal transmission length of fiber for various information data rates.
