Abstract : This program examined the role of glass processing upon subsequent radiation effects with particular focus upon optical absorption centers. The results have indicated a number of strategies appropriate for the mitigation of radiation induced darkening of optical components. The fundamental understanding of the relationship between glass processing variables and atomic defects in glasses has permitted these advances. Keywords: Glass, Processing radiation.
