ABSTRACT
We report an electron spin resonance study of the defects induced by γ irradiation in silica. By comparing various materials and by studying the defect growth as a function of the accumulated γ dose, interesting hints are found on the defect origin. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The natures of most radiation-induced point defects in amorphous silicon dioxide (a-SiO2) are well known on the basis of 56 years of electron spin resonance (ESR) and optical studies of pure and doped silica glass in bulk, thin-film, and fiber-optic forms. Many of the radiation-induced defects...
