Abstract

In the next years, due to the requirements included in the 2013/59/ Euratom Directive, the number of radon concentration measurements performed using solid-state nuclear track detectors (SSNTDs) will increase and so their costs and environmental impact. For this reason, on the basis of some experimental tests, arises the need to consider within measurement protocols the possibility to reuse holders of radon concentration measuring devices and to optimize the use of chemicals for detectors etching.
