Recent applications of nuclear track emulsion
EPJ Web of Conferences, 117, 10010
12th International Conference on Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions, Catania, Italy
Application of the nuclear track emulsion technique (NTE) in radioactivity and nuclear fission studies is discussed. It is suggested to use a HSP-1000 automated microscope for searching for a collinear cluster tri-partition of heavy nuclei implanted in NTE. Calibrations of a-particles and ion ranges in a novel NTE are carried out. Surface exposures of NTE samples to a Cf-252 source started. Planar events containing fragments and long-range a-particles as well as fragment triples only are studied. NTE samples are calibrated by ions Kr and Xe of energy of 1.2 and 3 A MeV. Use of the image recognition program "ImageJ" for obtaining characteristics of individual events and for events from the large scan area is presented.
