Build and test of a gamma radiation detector
MetadataShow full item record
Gamma radiation detection has been part of research for a long period of time. Being able to detect gamma radiation when being exposed to radiation is a must. The gamma detector I have built will demonstrate that it is capable of detecting gamma radiation with a low budget. We were able to build and test a gamma detector. The circuit was tested with two different source types of gamma radiation. I will show that detector is efficient with a 42mCi source and can detect a smaller source of up to 1uCi.
