Registration of fast-neutron-induced recoil and (n,alpha) tracks directly in sensitive polymers especially polycarbonate foils when etched by the electrochemical etching (ECE) method provides a simple, sensitive, and inexpensive means of fast neutron dosimetry. The wide dose range and a dose equivalent response, negligible fading rate, and insensitivity to… (More)
