Solid State Nuclearr Track Detector - CR39

Damage caused by radiation emitted from radioactive materials (especially high energy alphas and neutrons) can be used as detector for the emission. The picture shows the tracks caused by alphas from Radon gas emission (Rn-222) on SSNTD CR39. The surface density of the tracks is directly proportional to the activity of the radiation.
