Paper Abstract

In the United States, several public and private agencies have performed numerous radiation tests of fiber optic components and more specifically optical fibers. Even though the test procedures and test results have varied tremendously, several key parameters, such as radiation dose rate, temperature, and wavelength, have been identified. This paper compares some of the key parameters in the measurement of optical fiber radiation response and discusses standard radiation test practices. A generic radiation environment based on Glasstone's classic, The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, 1957, also is presented.
