Paper Abstract

The growth and recovery rates of X-ray and gamma-ray-induced infrared adsorption in a germanium-silicate multimode fiber can be qualitatively explained by assuming that two types of color centers are responsible for the absorption. One color center (type A) recovers at a fast rate and reaches a steady state concentration during irradiation. The second color center recovers at a slow rate and shows an increase in concentration during irradiation. The formation of color center type A can be suppressed during irradiation by the addition of molecular hydrogen.
