Abstract:

A number of parameters that are generally used for the analysis of the heavy ion tracks in CR-39 Nuclear Track Detector have been computed. The parameters are Residual RangeR, Velocity betaVc, Kinetic Energy per Nucleon enucleon, Effective Charge z sub eff and Energy Loss of heavy ions dEdx. The computation has been performed for isotopes of interest in cosmic ray work, with charges in the region 2 or z or 30 and for residual range, R or 30 cm. In any Nuclear Track Detector, the residual range of a stopping particle is a very easily measured quantity. The residual range is used as the first entry in the track parameter table. The corresponding velocity is given in the second column. The velocity provides a link with the rest of the parameters. All the entries in a row are interdependent and the table will give the value of these parameters if any one is known.
