Glass Characteristics

Glass is the main component of a radiation shielding window. It provides both essential required functions: protection and vision.

The protection is related to glass thickness and composition: Corning SAS works with lead loaded glass (density : 3.3 - 5.2) and borosilicates (density : 2.5). Some glass types can be cerium oxyde doped if needed. The vision comes from the extreme purity of the basic material, associated to polishing and assembling operations carried out with particular care.
