Abstract

"Purpose of Investigation: One of the objects of this investigation is to determine the amount of CeO2 required to prevent the discoloration of glass when exposed to gamma radiation. By discoloration, it is meant that there has been a change in the absorption bands of visible light. Another objective is an attempt to prevent the coloration by the introduction of two oxides not previously used. Finally, a theory is presented which could explain why glass containing CeO2 does not change color upon irradiation by gamma rays"--Introduction, page 1.
