Application of Optical Methods in Nuclear Track Measurements

Ali Mostofizadeh , Xiudong Sun and Mohammad Reza Kardan

Abstract:
In recent years, many theoretical and experimental studies have been carried out to develop one of the most interesting branches of nuclear science called trackology. One of the most attractive aspects of such researches is the investigation of optical properties of nuclear tracks. This field of researches is particularly attractive because it can demonstrate a significant relationship between applied modern optics and nuclear track evaluations. This review paper attempts to summarize some advanced theoretical and experimental methods applied in modern optics to develop some technical skills used in nuclear track studies. Some optical models have been introduced to describe the process of tracks appearance in solid state detectors. Moreover, the theoretical principles of light transmission through the polymeric detectors have been described and some features of Fourier optics have been demonstrated. The practical and experimental aspects of the subject including the applications of coherent light in nuclear track evaluations have been also noticed. In this review, a particular study field in modern optics has been described which can be called optics of nuclear tracks.
