Abstract
The Calliope plant, a pool-type irradiation facility located at the Research Centre ENEA-Casaccia (Rome), is equipped with the 60Co γ source in a high-volume shielded cell. Calliope facility is involved in radiation processing research on materials (polymers and optical components) and on devices to be used in hostile radiation environment such as nuclear plants, aerospace experiments and High Energy Physics experiments. The aim of this work is to give an overall picture of the activity we are carrying on at our laboratories with a mention to the possible applications in the field of scintillators and glasses, like doping effect to induce radiation resistance in scintillators, glasses for safe nuclear fuel disposal, suitable substitute oxides which can replace PbO in the preparation of lead-free glasses complying environmental regulations.
