Title: Proton and alpha particle response characteristics of CR-39 polymer for reactor and dosimetry applications

Abstract

Proton and alpha particle response characteristics of CR-39 polymer for reactor and dosimetry applications have been investigated. The investigation included measurement of track etch rate as a function of proton and alpha particle energy. A calibration curve of track diameter versus proton energy is presented. The promising capabilities for reactor proton spectrometry and passive fast-neutron personnel dosimetry techniques are discussed.
