Induced loss of optical fibers exposed to nuclear reactor thermal neutrons

Abstract

The base material currently used for optical fiber waveguides (optical fibers) is silica. By adding various impurities, properties required for optical transmissions are created. When these optical fibers are used in a particular environment, such as a nuclear reactor, damage caused by radiation from the source becomes a serious problem. It is well… (More)
