Paper Abstract

Many potential uses exist for multiple-wavelength optical fiber systems. Numerous DOD, DOE and NASA applications will have radiation survivability requirements. This paper describes the use of Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM), Time Division Multiplexing (TDM), and Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM) to simultaneously measure radiation-induced attenuation of optical fibers due to both steady state and transient radiation over a wide range of temperatures. Sample experimental data and block diagrams of the test configurations are presented.
