In this paper, we propose a method to determine the equilibrium factor using a bare LR 115 detector. The partial sensitivities rhoi of the LR 115 detector to 222Rn and its alpha-emitting short-lived progeny, 218Po and 214Po, were investigated. We first determined the distributions of lengths of major and minor axes of the perforated alpha tracks in the LR 115 detector produced by 222Rn, 218Po and 214Po through Monte Carlo simulations. The track parameters were calculated using a track… CONTINUE READING
