Paper Abstract

Three materials commonly employed in opto-electronic intregrated circuits were evaluated for radiation-induced optical attenuation in the range 300 nm to 3000 nm. These include optically clear epoxy and crystalline lithium niobate after Co-60 exposure and crystalline tellurium dioxide after mixed gamma/fast-neutron exposure. In all these materials, however, induced loss was restricted to shorter wavelengths; attenuation induced at the telecommnications windows near 850, 1300 and 1550 nm was <0.1 dB/cm.
