Resolve Optics Ltd has produced an informative technical note that addresses the question 'Does My Application Require Radiation Resistant Lenses?

In nuclear power, nuclear reprocessing, space, medical and other scientific applications optical glass may be exposed to high energy radiation like gamma, electron, proton and neutron radiation. With the accumulation of higher doses this radiation reduces the transmittance of optical glass (turning brown or grey) especially near the UV-visible edge of the spectrum.

Fortunately optical glasses can be stabilised against transmittance loss caused by ionizing radiation by adding Cerium (Ce) to the composition. The extent of stabilization differs from glass type to glass type.
