effect of UV exposure on optical reflectivity of alumina ceramics

It has been observed that reflectivity of sintered alumina (99.7% purity)discs has reduced in visible region after UV exposure whereas
that of bisque fired discs of same composition is uneffected. Can anyone explain how the refelectivity of sintered alumina discs effected?
