A radiation resistant single-mode optical fiber has been specifically developed for distributed sensing in harsh environments associated with MGy(SiO2) dose radiation. Different types of coating have been used: acrylate, polyimide, aluminum that allow extending the range of accessible temperatures up to 400°C. Various characterizations were performed: radiation inducted attenuation (offline and online), fiber mechanical strength and coating thermal degradation post irradiation. Safe operation is demonstrated for almost all coating types up to the MGy(SiO2) range of cumulated dose.
