Feasibility of probing solid state nuclear tracks by thermal analysis method

  • Articles/Nuclear Physics
  • Published:
Chinese Science Bulletin


The feasibility of probing solid state nuclear tracks by thermal analysis method is discussed both theoretically and experimentally. Comparison is made between the thermal analysis method and the optical microscope method, and it is demonstrated that this thermal analysis method is applicable to probing solid state nuclear tracks.
