Abstract

The resistance against alpha radiation of several thin plastics (formvar, parylene, polyimide, polypropylene, polysufone, vinyls), which may be used as nuclear target substrates, was examined using alpha particles emitted by 241-Am (in air and in vacuum) and produced in a cyclotron. Important differences in results were observed depending on the experimental conditions, but whatever these were the best results were always obtained using polyimide foils.
