Abstract

The changes in the absorption spectra induced by Co-60 irradiation and high temperature annealing was studied for selected PbWO4 crystals. Based on radiation and annealings induced absorption spectra, four color centers are proposed, which could be responsible for shaping the absorption spectrum of PbWO4 crystals below 3.6 eV, namely Pb3+, O-, F, and F+ centers. Thermoluminescence (TSL) glow curves above room temperature were also studied on these samples to determine further the trap levels resulting from irradiation. Correlation between the results obtained by TSL and Co-60 irradiation induced absorption changes is discussed. (C) 1997 American Institute of Physics.
