Abstract
Three types of fibers, that were candidates to be used in the Tilecal/ATLAS detector were irradiated in a Co-60 gamma source. The degradation of the l ight output and attenuation length were measured a few hours and several da ys after the end of the irradiation. The results are presented. (C) 2000 El sevier Science B.V.
