Optical fibers for nuclear instrumentation

There are multiple applications where optical fiber is exposed to ionizing radiation such as nuclear power plants, nuclear storage facilities, space applications and some research facilities like CERN’s Hadron collider or other high energy physics/particle accelerators.

Fibercore has both single-mode and multimode fiber that has been designed specifically to be minimally impacted by ionizing radiation. These optical fibers are used for communication links that go through such environments and are also used for a variety of sensing applications such as distributed temperature sensing (DTS) and strain sensing. Products ideal for the nuclear environment include pure silica core single-mode and graded index pure core multimode.
