The effect of varying single mode fiber fabrication factors such as core and clad dopant concentrations, deposition conditions, and draw parameters on the recovery of the nuclear radiation-induced attenuation at 1.3 μm has been studied. Statistically significant correlations of core factors have been established with a 24 experimental design, and separate one-dimensional experiments revealed the effect of clad [Ge] and [F].
