Paper Abstract

In order to develop infrared optical fiber systems in nuclear media, studies are made to know the behavior on line of fluoride glass optical fibers under irradiation. the increase of induced loss and the influence of the dose rate are given at 2.4 microns. Cycles of rela-xation at room temperature and y ray exposure allows an important bleaching and an unaffected kinetic of losses. Characterization of defects created by y radiation on bulk of ZBLA glass is carried out by means of electron spin resonance (ESR). A linear kinetic of ESR signal with dose is observed and possible models for defects are discussed.
