Abstract : Radiation effects in synthetic and high purity synthetic quartz are examined in a research programme at the GEC Hirst Research Centre, Wembley England. Low temperature infrared absorption, electron spin resonance (ESR) and variable temperature acoustic loss/crystal parameter measurement are use in a study of radiation induced defects in quartz and their interaction with device properties with the goal of developing radiation hardened quartz crystals.
