Paper Abstract

This paper addresses two effects of transient irradiation on optical fibers. The recovery of the induced attenuation was measured from 100 ns to 1 ms in several fibers, including two pure silica fibers and three fibers with doped silica cores. Measurements were performed at various optical power levels up to 28 mW at -55 and 23 C to investigate the temperature dependence and possible photobleaching effects at short times. We also report studies of the luminescence induced by the transient irradiation for the same group of fibers.
