Study of 132 54 Xe-Ion Tracks in Makrofol-E Polycarbonate Plastic Track Detector

Makrofol-E polycarbonate plastic detector has been exposed to 13254Xe-ion from cyclotron beam at JINR, Dubna, USSR. The bulk etch rate and tack etch rate are measured for different etching temperatures and hence the activation energies are determined. The maximum etched track length is compared with the theoretically computed range. The experimental results show that the track etch rate, Vt along the particle trajectory depends on the etching temperature, T but the normalized track etch rate, V= Vt/Vb is independent of T. From the response curve it is evident that Vt depends on energy-loss, dE/dx as well as on T while V depends only on dE/dx and not on T. Moreover, the experimental data are presented for the influence of different annealing conditions on bulk etch rate, track diameter, track etch rate, and etchable range of 132 54 Xe-ion in Makrofol-E detector.

Keywords: Makrofol-E, accelerated heavy ion, annealing.
