Abstract
A brief overview is presented on the subject of the development of more radiation tolerant fiber optic waveguides. Data are presented for both polymer clad silica (PCS) and all silica fibers. The effects of new compositional variations on radiation response in both the core and cladding glasses are reported. Recent photobleaching measurements on irradiated fibers are also summarized. The spectral variation of the observed radiation--induced losses are given for a variety of state of the art fibers during and following exposure to ionizing radiation.
