Fluorine-doped Core Boosts Radiation Resistance of Single-mode Fiber

Reliable fiber-optic communications in high-radiation environments such as linear accelerators and nuclear reactors is made possible by silica fibers with optimized fluorine-doped cores. 

In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in improving the radiation resistance of optical fibers. Scientists at linear accelerators and particle colliders were early initiators of these activities when they determined the need to remotely sense and relay information about high-energy particle interactions.
