EFFECTS OF HIGH NEUTRON AND GAMMA FLUXES ON THE TRANSMISSION CHARACTERISTICS OF SOME OPTICAL GLASSES

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The design of the Sandia Engineering Reactor Facility (SERF) presented a unique problem of finding a way to view the virtually unshielded 5 Mw reactor during operation. It was determined that periscope viewing was most feasible. The front optical elements of the periscope must withstand a total integrated radiation dose of 3 x 10/sup 9/ of gammas, and 1.4 x 10/sup 7/ n/cm/sup 2/, without excessive transmission losses. A program started to study the effects of radiation at such rates and total doses on the transmission characteristics of available optical glasses is described. Curves plotted from the study are presented ... continued below

A program started to study the effects of radiation at such rates and total doses on the transmission characteristics of available optical glasses is described. Curves plotted from the study are presented to show graphically the results of irradiation on these optical glasses. (W.D.M.)
