    Abstract

    The observation of trans-iron nuclei in galactic cosmic rays (Z 30) requires a high performance cosmic ray detector telescope with a very large exposure area because of their extremely low fluxes. It is realized by the use of solid-state track detector of CR-39, which has an advantage of easy extension of exposure area. The verification of mass and nuclear charge identifications with the CR-39 detector newly developed for the observation of heavy cosmic ray particles has been made using Fe ions from NIRS-HIMAC. Mass and charge resolutions for Fe nuclei are found to be 0.22 amu and 0.22 cu in rms, respectively. Moreover, it is necessary to raise the Z/detection threshold in order to suppress background tracks produced by galactic cosmic rays with Z/<30. The new track detectors of copolymers of CR-39 and DAP (diallyl phthalate) have been developed and verified as for their performances. It was found that the newly CR-39 detector has a capability to observe trans-iron nuclei in galactic cosmic rays.
