Want to learn about Elektor’s improved radiation meter? On February 16, Elektor technical editor Thijs Beckers will host a webinar at element14 about the radiation meter, which is a DIY system that can measure alpha, beta, and gamma radiation.
According to Elektor, all that’s required to measure radiation is “a simple PIN photodiode and a suitable preamplifier circuit.” The system features “an optimized preamplifier and a microcontroller-based counter. The microcontroller takes care of measuring time and pulse rate, displaying the result in coun
ts per minute.The device we describe can be used with different sensors to measure gamma and alpha radiation. It is particularly suitable for long-term measurements and for examining weakly radioactive samples.”
