Abstract

After a brief presentation of the technical methods employed and the calibrations performed on different Nuclear Track Detectors (NTDs), the results obtained by their use in different fields of astroparticle and nuclear physics are presented. In particular the results of searches for magnetic monopoles, nuclearites and other exotica in the cosmic radiation carried out by the Bologna Group. Also an application of these detectors in an experiment for the determination of the charge spectrum of primary cosmic ray particles is described. Example of the use of the same detectors for the measurement of the total and partial charge changing fragmentation cross sections of relativistic ions in several targets are also reported.
