Paper Abstract

In various optical fibers we induced light emission either by bremsstrahlung or by electron pulses from a Febetron 705 radiation source. The emitted light was measured and will be explained as function of the dose rate, the radiation-induced loss, the fiber length and direction, the wavelength, and the width of the radiation pulses. The radiation induced excess loss, deducted from the shape of the emitted light pulses, fits reasonably to the excess loss gained with transmission measurements.
