Abstract : This report presents the results of our analysis of nearly three hundred technical documents published or unpublished in the field of radiation effects in photonics. Previous research efforts on radiation effects in photonic components and systems were identified. The collected data was analyzed and an assessment was made as to the level of confidence of the data and the current knowledge of radiation effects testing. The conclusions provide a summary of the analysis and an appraisal of the suitability for use in a radiation environment of each element identified.
