Calculation of Alpha Particles Track Parameters using Program Written by MATLAB Software (TRIAC)

Abstract

A new program was designed and written utilizing MATLAB softwareto perform image processing operations for the alpha particles tracksincident on the CR-39 nuclear tracks detector. The output code, namedTRIAC, is using with connected digital camera as in Microscope (binocular)to obtained tracks picture. The program has been developed tocalculate the track number, track density, and measure the track diameter(major axis, minor axis and equivalent axis). This developed codesaves a lot of effort compared to the traditional manual method thatusually use in the nuclear track’s estimations. Besides that, it increasesthe accuracy of diameters measurement by avoiding the manual errorsresulting from the use of the microscope.
