    We propose a kinetic approach to the decomposition of the radiation-induced absorption spectra into individual Gaussian absorption bands. It is based on the correlated analysis of a series of induced absorption spectra obtained in the course of multi-step irradiation and during room temperature long-term post-radiation annealing. The methodology is demonstrated using data on Co60 gamma irradiated samples of commercial boro-silicate glass N-BK7 from SCHOTT. We show that physically meaningful spectroscopic parameters of absorption bands can be obtained without a priori knowledge of the band peak position and bandwidth.
