The primary objective of the proposed activity is to evaluate the performance of a fiber laser based Optical Frequency Comb (OFC) system, under well-defined ionizing radiation conditions. The target OFC performance shall assume the performance requirements of a defined future application of ESA. This OFC performance (specification) be established at the start of the project and will be the reference value for the final system. The final OFC performance, following well-defined radiation exposure parameters, shall meet the same performance of the un-radiated system. In order to meet the OFC performance after radiation, a specially developed radiation-hard doped fiber shall be developed as an integral element of the project.
