Paper Abstract

Nine different fused silica core optical fibers were irradiated in a fission reactor up to an ionizing dose of 109Gy and a fast neutron fluence of 1023n/m2 at 400 K. One specimen, fluorine doped and specially sintered and annealed, showed good radiation resistance in the wavelength range of 300 - 1850 nm. Results showed that the fibers can be applied in a neutron associated heavy radiation environments.
