Abstract: In this work we studied an automated analysis of alpha particle tracks in CR-39, by employing a MITAKA photo-microdensitometer with a C1522 HAMAMATSU Image Analysis System. This system can be used to measure track diameters (with a nominal precision of 0.8 μm), superficial track density, and track darkness. This information can be used to determine the alpha particle energies and also their incidence angles (azimuthal and zenithal). The performance of such an automated system, to analyze CR-39 samples which were exposed to alpha particles of known energies, was studied, comparing its response with measurements performed manually by experienced microscopists. The experimental results indicate that the MITAKA/HAMAMATSU system is very reliable for alpha track analysis in CR-39, making possible its use to perform time-consuming measurements in microscopy, as in the case of radon and its dauhgters surveys.
