Abstract

Čerenkov radiation is generated as an unwanted background when optical fibers carrying signals pass through radiation fields. The angular dependence of the intensity of Čerenkov radiation transmitted in silica-core fibers was measured using 6 and 12 MeV electron beams from a Varian Clinac accelerator. These confirmed theoretical predictions that the angular variation of Čerenkov radiation transmitted along optical fibers depends only on the refractive index difference Δ n between the core and the cladding, and that the peak intensity is proportional to the cube of the fiber core radius.
