Makrofol polycarbonate plastic track detectors have been exposed to54132Xe -ions of energy 1.1 MeV/N from the cyclotron beam. The bulk etch rate and track etch rate are measured for different temperatures and the activation energies are calculated. The maximum etched track length is compared with the theoretically computed range. The critical energy loss is (dE/dx)c=5 MeV cm2 mg−1 for this detector material.
