|Abstract:||This work presents a recalibration of U-doped standard glasses using natural uranium thin films to be used as most dedicated neutron monitor for fission-track dating. The recalibrated U-doped glasses were used to determine fission-track ages in apatite samples from Brazilian alkaline formations (Alto Paranaiba) and standard Durango apatite. Samples were irradiated in two nuclear reactors with different characteristics and the results were compared. For well-thermalized neutron facility, metal activation monitor was also used. The ages of Alto Paranaiba arch and Durango apatite agree with those determined by other radiometric dating methods and metal activation monitors. These results suggest that the presented recalibration is suitable to be used routinely for fission-track dating studies even in a non-well thermalized neutron facility.|
