The effects of gamma irradiation on crystallization kinetics and microhardness properties of the Li2O–Al2O3–SiO2 (LAS) glass–ceramic sample have been investigated. The glass–ceramic was irradiated to γ-source 60Co of 0.7 MGy. The crystallization kinetics of the irradiated and non-irradiated samples were characterized using differential scanning calorimetry. The crystallization kinetics and microhardness properties of the glass–ceramic changed the gamma irradiation, and the high dose of gamma irradiation affects significantly the crystallization kinetics and microhardness properties of the Li2O–Al2O3–SiO2 glass–ceramic sample.
