Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the radiation behavior of low water, Hard Clad Silica (HCS*) fibers at ambient temperature and below and to doses between 1.5 and 10 krad[SiO2] . The dose rates are 5 and 23 rads/second. The radiation induced attenuation growth and subsequent recovery out to 1,000/3,000 seconds are reported for each irradiation condition.
