Alpha track technology can provide useful isotopic information of boron in the primary coolant water. In the quantitative analysis using the alpha track analysis, the shape or area of sample on the solid track detector becomes very important, especially for the analysis of liquid samples. In this research, a multi-dot plate has been developed for this purpose. The multi-dot plate provides fixed standard shape of the sample solution that stays inside of the printed circle, and consequently increases the reproducibility of the boron analysis.
