Study of Gamma-ray Induced Attenuation of Fluorine-doped Single-mode Radiation Hard Optic Fiber


The paper presents the measurements results of optic fiber’s radiation induced attenuation. The approach of optic fiber’s radiation test at negative temperatures is introduced. The results of an investigation of the decay of an optical signal during a pulsed electron.

Keywords: radiation hardness, fiber-optic communication, radiation-induced attenuation
