The most common types of radiation are alpha, beta and gamma. The NeuLog Geiger sensor measures all three types of radiation. The radioactivity of a sample can be measured by counting how many ionizing events occurred in a period of time or as rate (counts per second, for example). Possible experiments that can be performed are: Radioactivity and distance, Lifetime measurements, Biological radioactive markers, measuring half-lives, Radiation shielding, etc.
The Geiger counter sensor uses the following units of measure: Counts: Total number of ionizing events.
