26th Workshop on Solid State Nuclear Track Detector

This series of workshops has been providing annual opportunities to exchange recent achievements on the fundamentals and applications of Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors, in which the trajectory of energetic proton and heavy ions in some dielectric materials are visualized by chemical treatments. This is a passive radiation detector used in various branches of science and technology such as nuclear physics, cosmic rays, dosimetry in space, neutron dosimetry, radiation biology and so on. On the fundamental aspects, the formation process of tracks in solids has been an unsolved problem in a filed of radiation chemistry. The developments of new materials for SSNTD have been conducted under the help of polymeric chemistry. A memorial lecture on Madam Curie who was awarded the Novel prize for chemistry in 1911 will be also made for general publics.
