Electronic and photonic components are well known to suffer from exposure to ionising radiation [1]. The radiation interacts with the host materials, alters their characteristics and most often modifies the performance and reliability of the device. Modern commercially available optical fibres exhibit low to moderate levels of radiation induced absorption (RIA). This, together with the undeniable advantages of fibre optic technology and the increased availability of compact, efficient and low cost devices, has renewed interest in the applications of optical fibre-based systems in radiation environments.
