Paper Abstract

A radiation resistant optical fiber used in a broadband source is presented. Both ASE source and Fiber Optical Gyroscope (FOG) commonly used in space missions, suffer from failures and degradation after long term exposure to radiative environment. The aim of this article is to present the results of our investigation on fiber and ASE source architecture in order to design a Radiation Resistant Erbium Doped Fiber that offers long term stability of the gyroscope performances.
