Abstract

During recent years, CR-39 detector measurements have gained attention due to improvements in image processing methods. An assessment method based on the application of a high-resolution slide scanner and its quality checks is introduced, using commercially available software and hardware. Using the conventional (visual) comparing analysis for 563 detectors, the method was found suitable for high-precision and reliable track analysis. The accuracy of the measurements were not disturbed by any other pseudo-tracks (scratches or contamination) due to the signal shape of the analysis.
