Paper Abstract

General trends in radiation sensitivity of optical fibers have been studied using a number of commercially available fiber products. These fibers differ in core doping and type: single mode, multi-mode (graded index) or polarization retaining. For applications with a radiation tolerance requirement, selection beginning with a pure silica core fiber, optimized for operation at 1300 nm is indicated.
