What material shrinks after gamma radiation?

Does any material shrink significantly after gamma radiation?
Some polymer materials shrink at elevated temperature. Do polymer materials exist that do the same during gamma irradiation?

Some food is "Irradiated" by gamma rays to sterilize it ...kills all bacteria in the food , the food is often fed into the irradiation plant packaged in plastic containers and then sold in supermarkets in these same plastic containers we are all familiar with ...

The radiation has little effect on the plastic , but does cause some changes .... http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...10308/abstract
