A possibility of applying a compact optical diagnostics to nuclear systems, such as detecting high energy neutrons in a nuclear fusion system and measuring a high-flux gamma-ray in a fission reactor with a wide dynamic range, has been studied, utilizing radiation resistant optical fibers and radioluminescent (radiation-induced luminescent) materials.
