Paper Abstract

Test procedures and standards are currently being developed to validate and verify the effects of ionizing radiation on optical fiber components. The results from these tests can vary significantly with variations in the actual test setup and test requirements. It is important to recognize these sensitivities and monitor or control them to eliminate any inconsistencies in the test results. This paper will address the effects of ionizing radiation on optical fiber components, the development of test procedures and standards, and the comparison of a few test parameters to the final test results.
