Paper Abstract

The potential advantages of fiber optic systems in adverse environments have generated considerable interest in the development of data links for use in ionizing-radiation environments. One important facet of this application area is the desirability of being able to operate under moderate to high dose-rate conditions. This paper discusses the problems involved in the design of fiber optic transmitters and receivers for use in such environments. Experimental data on several fiber optic transmitters and receivers, which were designed for operation in transient environments, will be presented. These experimental tests were performed using a flash x-ray machine at dose-rates up to and exceeding 109 rads/sec.
