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

*We do not correct any personally identifiable information , such as device ID.

Recent changes:

Like it Accept that the input wave measures sound

Works with a separate dongle This app will only work with a dongle that can be purchased from Japan or sellers in UK and US. This dongle connects to your phone or tablet over the microphone input. If you want a radiation detector without a dongle, then search for apps that use the camera as an (insensitive) radiation detector. * * * The setup instructions are not very clear. Go to settings, set both thresholds to 1% and trigger to 10 seconds. Start measuring in the "input wave" view. Hold the Pocket Geiger dongle next to a radiation source such as a bag of potassium fertilizer or a smoke-detector ionization chamber. Adjust the settings such that the pulse does not exceed the noise threshold, and crosses the radiation threshold only once. The dongle is not very sensitive to the type of radiation from a smoke detector (americium-241) or potassium, but it is enough to calibrate the thresholds.
