Paper Abstract

A preliminary investigation into the optical effects of steady-state 1-irradiation of fiber optic delay lines has been completed. The tests in this investigation involve exposing fibers potted in high and low bend stress configurations to 1300 rads/min. (Si02) 1.3 Mev γ-rays. Common optical attenuation kinetics are observed during the growth and recovery phases of the experiment for both high and low bend stress configurations. However, no measureable bendstress related phenomena was observed.
