Paper Abstract

A review of the behavior of state-of-the-art optical fiber waveguides in high dose (≥ 105 rad), steady state radiation fields is presented. The influence on radiation-induced transmission loss due to experimental parameters such as dose rate, total dose, irradiation history, temperature, wavelength, and light intensity, and material parameters such as dopant type, concentration, and OH content is described. Recommendations for future work in high dose environments are given.
