Gamma-ray (γ-ray) sensitivity has been studied in Ag-doped and/or AgI-modified Ge-Ga-S glasses. The sensitivity is controllable in terms of silver presence. Compared to the silver-free sample, the AgI-modified glass shows greater sensitivity to γ-ray irradiation regarding larger change in the transmission spectra (ΔT), whereas improved resistance to γ-ray irradiation occurs in the silver-doped AgI-modified glass with only 1 mol% silver metal being intentionally added. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
