Paper Abstract

The application of large diameter plastic-clad silica (PCS) fibers inside a seven MV electrostatic accelerator is described. Voltage gradients along the fibers exceed 1.5 MV/m in this application. The fibers are employed in serial digital data links for a control system installed in the high-volt.ge terminal of the accelerator. The use of electronics, I-R components and fibers in this extremely hostile environment will be discussed. Several other applications of these large diameter fibers are also mentioned.
