Abstract
The behaviour of gammairradiated radiation shielding glasses has been investigated. With increasing density of the glasses the attenuation of the radiation and the energy deposition in the glasses increase. The lower the radiation energy the higher the energy deposition per unit volume of glass and therefore the stronger the observed discolouration. Comparable discolouration appears in glasses of density 4 g/cm3 if the irradiation dose of a Co-60 source (1 MeV) is a factor 6 higher than an Ir-192 gamma source (0 MeV) 1.
