Paper Abstract

This paper reports progress in the derivation of an empirical model for predicting the radiation induced loss in matched clad single-mode optical fibers. We have drawn fibers from a set of MCVD preforms which were produced over a range of fabrication conditions intended to span the variations encountered in commercial MCVD fiber production. Conclusions regarding dependence of fallout radiation sensitivity on fabrication parameters were drawn from the data through orthogonal matrix analysis.
