Paper Abstract

It was found that high purity soda lime glass shows a markedly different induced absorption spectra when exposed to different types of ionizing radiation such as UV lamp or femtosecond and nanosecond laser pulses. The following irradiation was used in the experiments: nanosecond pulses at the fundamental and harmonics of a Nd:YAG laser (λ = 1064, 532, 355, and 266 nm), femtosecond pulses of a Ti:sapphire laser operating at λ = 780 nm, ultraviolet rays from a high pressure Xe lamp, X-rays, and Gamma rays. Features of radiation defect generations are discussed.
