Aug 18, 2011iPhone Application Measures Ambient Radioactivity
Aug 18, 2011 - Intended for civil protection, iRad 1.0.5 measures ambient radioactivity and displays a numerical measure value. It operates similarly to Geiger counters, by counting interactions of radiation as it crosses the surface of the device's camera chip. Testing with radioactive materials shows satisfying performance, making it suitable to measure ambient radioactivity, whether natural or due to artificial sources such as nuclear plant leaks. It collects all measurements and displays them on a map.
