Abstract Etched track opening geometries in Biotite, Phlogopite and soda-lime glass irradiated with swiftheavy ions [197Au(11.64 MeV/n), 136Xe(11.56 MeV/n), 58Ni(11.56 MeV/n)] at different angle of incidence havebeen studied using appropriate chemical etching technique. Different geometries (Hexagonal, irregular polygon,triangular in case of Biotite and Phlogopite, and circular & elliptical in case of soda lime glass detector) of heavyion tracks are reported in the present investigations using optical microscope. The different shapes of theseheavy ions track geometries are found to be related with various target-projectile parameters (viz : type ofprojectiles, energy, stopping power, angle of incidence of the projectile, density of defects and its reactivity withetchant, etching conditions and chemical structure of the detectors). The dependence of different shapes ofheavy ion tracks in isotropic and anisotropic medium on the variation of radiation damage densities along the iontrajectories have also been discussed in the present paper.
