Protective coats for radiation-resistant optical fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Attempts have been made to use optical fibers as signal transmission lines in radiation fields as in nuclear reactor facilities etc. For use in such high-radiation fields, it is not infrequently required that the fiber be resistant not only to radiation but also to heat. We have already demonstrated that the pure-silica core optical fiber fabricated by the MRT process1 has high-radiation resistance.2 Based on our research conducted on jacket materials, we propose a new radiation- and heat-resistant fiber for actual use.
