Figure 3. Alpha track devices consist of a material, such as film, which sustains damage along the track of an alpha particle. The material is then placed into etching fluid, which enlarges the track by extending the region of damage. Once the tracks have been sufficiently enlarged to become visible, their density at the surface of the material is determined and related to dose. (Photo courtesy of Terradex) 19
