Paper Abstract

This paper reports the results of low dose rate (< 1 rad/hr) exposures of several different kinds of polarization-maintaining (PM) fibers. In addition, the relationship between stress and radiation sensitivity has been investigated using otherwise identical fibers in which varying levels of both symmetric and asymmetric stress have been induced by grinding the preform to varying depths.
