Irradiation studies of multimode optical fibres for use in ATLAS front-end links

Abstract:

The radiation tolerance of three multimode optical fibres has been investigated to establish their suitability for the use in the front-end data links of the ATLAS experiment. Both gamma and neutron irradiation studies are reported. A step-index fibre with a pure silica core showed an induced attenuation of approximately 0.05 dB/m at 330 kGy(Si) and 1×1015 n(1 MeV Si)/cm2 and is suitable for use with the inner detector links which operate at 40-80 Mb/s. A graded-index fibre with a predominant...
