Irradiation test of pre-annealed optical fiber was carried out using gamma-ray and fast neutron source. Optical fiber has a good radiation resistance by the heat treatment and there are optimum temperatures changed by the kinds of radiation and the wavelength of transmission light. It is necessary to select the heat treatment temperature for developing the radiation resistance by the situation of the optical fiber.
