Abstract:

Optical guided wave devices can experience crosstalk and mode- switching in the presence of ionizing radiation. This technical note discusses the responses of LiTaOsub3 and LiNbOsub3Ti directional coupler waveguides to exposures of linearly accelerated electrons. A comparison of the waveguides in terms of sensitivity to the ionizing radiation is made.
