Studies of CR-39 irradiated with -rays, X-rays and alpha particles by FTIR spectroscopy are presented. In this work we make a comparison between the effect of many types of radiation on the sensitivity of CR-39 detector by using the FTIR spectrometer. It was found that,investigated CR-39 is so sensitive for all types of radiation used that was used as a dosimeter for these types of radiation. The determination of alpha particles range in CR-39 plastic recorder is an important parameter in the field of charged particle identification using Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors. In this work the optical denisty of the detector was calculated and then it is used to determine α-range. An over- etched track profile method and a theoretical method derived by Almasi are compared. A good agreement between the three methods used in α-range determination was found.
