Radiation induced color centers in borate glasses have been identified and related to the base glass structure in numerous investigations. Among these centers are those associated with the boron-oxygen network and alkali 1, 2, 3, with lead 4, cerium 5 and with silver 6, 7. In the present paper, the indentification of silver centers was improved and extended by the use of the single silver isotope 107Ag. While the use of a single isotope is obviously limited, these identifications permit more reliable assignments in borate glasses containing normal silver.
