Abstract : Radiation test to silica fibers were conducted by typical 3 sources. They are silica fiber of graded-index Ge-P doped fiber (A fiber) known as usual communication fiber, step-index borosilicate cladded pure silica core fiber known as better radiation hard fiber (B fiber) and graded-index borosilicate fiber (C fiber). Now, graded-index borosilicate fiber is chosen for influence of boron dopant to radiation characteristics. These fibers were exposed to X-ray radiation, 1 gamma-ray radiation and neutron flux radiation. (Author)
