Cellulose nitrate films (commercially available as LR 115 films were irradiated systematically with alpha particles in the energy range from 1 to 5 MeV with incident angles from 30 ◦ to 90◦. After etching to remove a thickness of 6.5 m, the lengths of the major and minor axes of the alpha-particle track openings in the films were measured with an image analyser under an optical magnification of 10 3. These data were used altogether to derive a V function (ratio between the track etch rate and… CONTINUE READING
