Abstract: Irradiation technology of big size polymer pellicles on the cyclotron U-120 of INR of NAS of Ukraine with α-particles is described. Irradiation with α-particles and photons of high energies allows to produce nano-porous filter materials from new domestic polymers. The last ones have higher physical and mechanical indices and provide obtaining nuclear membranes of enhanced strength. Technology is also improved on the stage of material sensitization.

Keywords: track membranes, α-particles, cyclotron.
