Gamma-ray irradiations induced various alterations in sulfur-and selenium-based chalcogenide glasses. The absorbed dose was in the range of 0.01-3.6 MGy. The glasses exhibit prominent sensitivity to y-ray irradiation, characterized by changes in some of the physical properties of the glasses, e.g., optical transmission, optical band gap, density, and thermal expansion coefficient. The effects on glass structure and microscopic morphology were also studied by Raman spectra and scanning electron microscopic observations. © 2006 The American Ceramic Society.
