Paper Abstract

The exposure of birefringent guided wave devices to ionizing radiation can result in nonequivalent signal attenuations over the eigenmode axes and to highly interactive crosstalk between the coupled waveguides. This paper discusses the response of polarization maintaining (PM) fibers and directional coupler waveguides exposed to accelerated electrons, and reports on advances made in delineating and understanding the response mechanisms involved.
