Paper Abstract

Radiation resistance for several fiber samples is explored, with emphasis on variations in draw temperatures for both low- and high-OH content preforms. For a given prqorm type, draw temperature had minimal effect on radiation resistance for transient conditions below 10-7s. Dosimetry techniques were inter compared for pulsed electron accelerators. A high purity, high-RH content, fiber was tested for radiation response to determine transient attenuation from 4 ns to 104s.
