Abstract
We present an experimental determination of the radiation response of commercial fibre optic transmitters and receivers for Local Area Networks. The transmission during irradiation was tested with analog as well as digital signals. We studied the radiation susceptibility up to a total Co60 gamma dose of 100 kGy and up to 10E12 neutrons/cmE2 (14 MeV). The results show that the components are working well up to these dose and neutron fluence values.
