Abstract
A systematic study of the attenuation (absorption) of electromagnetic radiation in Nuclear Track Detectors (NTDs) is carried out. The attenuation of gamma rays, X-rays, UV and visible radiations in NTDs are investigated using NaI(Tl) detector, Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) detector and UV-Vis spectrophotometer respectively. The values of some important parameters (e.g., mass attenuation coefficient, optical depth) of three commercially available NTDs (PET, Makrofol® and CR-39®), at the relevant regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, are determined. The details of the experimental techniques and the results are also presented in this report. © 2021 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab.
