We describe our R&D effort to develop radiation-hard scintillating and wavelength shifting fibers by doping fused-silica with cerium. This new type of cerium-doped fiber potentially offers myriad new applications in calorimeters for high-energy physics, tracking systems, and profiling of charged particle beams.
