Paper Abstract

The application of low loss multimode optical fibers to nuclear diagnostics has been discussed in previous papers. Fiber requirements for this application differ substantially from those for normal communications use. The emphasis for nuclear measurements has been on development of high frequency analog fiber optic transmission line systems, which range from 100 MHz to >500 MHz signals transmitted at 600 nm and 800 nm, respectively. Accordingly, specialized fiber characterization procedures over a wide spectral range have been developed. These techniques include measurement of material and modal dispersion, optical attenuation, and optical linearity. It is also important to know the prompt radiation response of optical fibers in nuclear diagnostics. Late time measurements of this type have been discussed in a previous paper. We will discuss a system to improve these measurements to the subnanosecond regime.
