Abstract : This report summarizes a study of radiation effects in components of a proposed fiber optic data bus for space, including models of the natural radiation environment. This test procedure outlines methods for measuring both the steady state response of optical fibers and cables exposed to continuous radiation and the transient response of optical fibers and cables exposed to a pulse of radiation. It can be used to determine the level of radiation-induced attenuation produced in single-mode or multimode optical fibers, in either cabled or uncabled form.
