Change in the properties of glass under the effect of ionizing radiation


The possibility of improvement of the physicochemical and technical properties of glass products under the effect of ionizing radiation is demonstrated. Radiation treatment increases the homogeneity of the glass mixture (accelerates silicate-forming and glass-forming processes) and mechanical strength of technical glass and improves its service properties.
