Sensor: PIN photo diode VBPW34 x 8pcs (reverse biased and shielded)
Detectable radiation: Gamma particles
Measurement range: 0.05uSv/h~10mSv/h (Calibrated using Cs-137), 0.01cpm~300000cpm
Measuring time: about 15 minutes at the dose rate of 0.05uSv/h
Energy response: :662keV~1333keV

Software features
- uSv/h and its counting error calculation
- CPM calculation
- Manual setting interface for threshold
- Oscilloscope

Excellent App - Could be improved The app with the radiation-watch.org dongle works well, however I do have a short wish list: 1) could work with longer than 10 minute count times. 2) would be nice if a .csv file could be created from the count graph for Excel or Open Office spreadsheets. 3) clicking with each count or even an alarm for count rates that the user could preset. The photo diode dongle works well, however is not quite sensitive enough to detect Vaseline glass. Also, it is only sensitive to gamma rays and x-rays.

Who do you think your fooling? Input wave is nothing more then a sound meter!
