Keywords: CR-39 polycarbonate | 241-Am irradiation doses and energies | Doppler broadening Positron annihilation technique

Polyally diglycol carbonate "CR-39" is widely used as etched track type particle detector. Doppler broadening positron annihilation (DBPAT) provides direct information about core and valance electrons in (CR-39) due to radiation effects. It provides a non-destructive and non-interfering probe having a detecting efficiency. This paper reports the effect of irradiation alpha-particle intensity emitted from 241-Am (5.486 MeV) source on the line shape S- and W-parameters for CR-39 samples. Modification of the CR-39 samples due to irradiation were studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques.
