FOR USE IN SURROUNDINGS WITH HIGH IONIZING RADIATION
Optical glass can be stabilized against transmittance loss caused by ionizing radiation by adding cerium to the composition. The added cerium changes the intrinsic color of the glass from white to a yellowish tint, while the UV-transmittance edge is shifted to a longer wavelength. Goal is, to optimize the cerium content in order to achieve high stability against radiation while keeping the initial coloring at a minimum level.
Radiation resistant glasses are available as:
We also offer high-precision optical components made of radiation resistant glass.
