Paper Abstract

A program is underway to derive a model for quantitatively predicting the response of single mode optical fiber waveguides to ionizing radiation. The study is based on the extensive body of investigative work on radiation effects in bulk glass and optical materials. Inputs to the model include fiber fabrication history and cross-sectional analysis of fiber composition. Contributions to induced loss by each variable is determined by empirically fitting data from in-house generated samples and use of an orthogonal matrix data reduction technique.
