Non-isothermal studies were carried out using thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermogravimetry (DTG) to obtain the activation energy of decomposition for solid state nuclear track detectors namely CR-39 diglycol carbonate and Makrofol polycarbonate detectors before and after exposure to α-particles of initial energies at levels between 5.1 and 34 MeV. Thermal gravitational analysis (TGA) indicated that the Makrofol detector decomposed in one main breakdown stage, while the CR-39 detector… CONTINUE READING
