Optical radiations were observed from optical fibers under irradiation in a fission reactor, JMTR. A major part of the observed optical radiations is thought to be composed of broad optical radiation in the whole wavelength range studied in the present experiment. This broad optical radiation will be generated by the process of so-called Cherenkov radiation. Also, a sharp optical radiation peak was found at 1270 nm on a F-doped fiber. This peak is thought to relate with doped fluorine ions and ionizing gamma-ray irradiation.
