[en] In the present work Ce3+-doped germanate glasses containing Gd2O3 and BaO or La2O3 were developed. The UV and VIS transmission spectra of these glasses were measured before and after irradiation at doses ranging between 3 and 277 Gy. The radiation induced absorption coefficient μ was calculated on the basis of the measured transmission spectra. From these results the cerium ions doping turns out to be effective in improving the radiation hardness of glasses with respect to their undoped matrices
[en] Positron lifetime of ZnO-based scintillating glasses (55 - x)SiO2-45ZnO-xBaF2 (x = 5, 10, 15 mol%) were measured with a conventional fast-fast spectrometer. Three positron lifetime components τ1, τ2, and τ3 are ∼0.23 ns, ∼0.45 ns, and ∼1.6 ns, respectively. All the three positron lifetime components first increase with increasing BaF2 concentration from 5 mol% to 10 mol%, then decreases as BaF2 further increases to 15 mol%. The result suggests that the glass sample with 10 mol% BaF2 contains the highest defect density, and is in excellent agreement with glass chemistry, glass density, thermal properties, and calculated crystallinity. Therefore, positron annihilation lifetime measurement is an effective tool for analyzing defects in ZnO-based scintillating glasses.
