Abstract

The wavelength dependent attenuation spectra of a range of commercially available and in-house fabricated scintillating polymer optical fibres have been measured using cut-back and side induced fluorescence techniques. The fibre transmission loss was found to be dependent on the scintillator formulation, core size and cladding, the effects of which are discussed in relation to various intrinsic and extrinsic loss sources.

Fig. 1 Comparison of loss measurement methods for optical fibres in Table 2. The small cross represents the scintillation peak emission wavelength, provided the loss was measurable at this wavelength. The attenuation peaks at 607 and 715 nm are present in all the polystyrene based fibres tested, and are an intrinsic loss source caused by harmonics of aromatic stretching of the carbon hydrogen bonds (C–H) in the polymer [17].

The scintillation emission peak location where applicable is marked with a small cross.

(* Double cladding structure on fibre). λpeak = emission peak wavelength (Manufacturer specified). γ= scintillation efficiency for a 1 MeV electron (Manufacturer specified). ** Scintillation efficiency in PVT only as provided by manufacturer, polystyrene based materials should have a 15% reduction in efficiency. Latt = attenuation length, specified as the fibre length over which scintillation intensity is reduced for 1/e of initial value (Manufacturer specified). αbg = background loss (dB/m) at 550 nm. λedge = wavelength (nm) at which loss is 5dB/m above αbg. N/A = not applicable, listed properties apply to binary formulated scintillating materials only. N/M = not measurable, parameter outside measurable detection range.
