Radiation Performance of Low Bend-Loss Optical Fiber for Gyroscope Applications


In this presentation we will describe the effect of radiation on a low bend loss, polarization maintaining (PM) fiber for an interferometric fiber optic gyroscope (IFOG). Our experimental design for exploring radiation effects incorporated unusual steps up and down in temperature during irradiation in order to further elucidate the radiation darkening mechanism.
