Paper Abstract

Various measurements have been made on step index fibers having pure silica cores which are expected to have good radiation hardness properties. These measurements include spec-tral attenuation, numerical aperture, and bandwidth. Values for the preceeding quantities are given for several step index fibers of various diameters including the following: plastic-clad silica (PCS), QSF-AS, Raychem VSC, Dainichi Diaguide, and Ensign-Bickford fiber. Computer-controlled instrumentation was developed for these measurements and is described.
