€15 IoT Geiger Counter using ESP8266

Geiger counters are devices used to detect radioactive emissions, most commonly beta particles and gamma rays. The counter consists of a tube filled with an inert gas that becomes conductive of electricity when it is impacted by a high-energy particle. The Geiger–Müller tube or G–M...

Making a Geiger counter with 555 timer IC

Radioactive particles are found abundantly in nature. Whether they come from space or generated on Earth (radioactive waste, medical X-rays, etc), they are high-energy particles resulting from radioactive decays. The three major types of radioactive particles are named after the first...

Building a PIN Diode Geiger Counter

"Kai" is in the process of building a Geiger counter based on BPW34 photodiode and explains his first step for the sensor circuit. The common approach to protect the photodiodes from light is to use one layer of tin foil and connect it to ground. This should also protect the...
