Radiation detection is achieved through the use of a variety of instruments. The most common type of radiation detector is a Geiger-Mueller (GM) tube, also called a Geiger counter. The dosimeter is also called a radiation plate. Workers use these devices if they are regularly exposed to a radiation-filled environment.
The badge helps track the level of radiation the person is exposed to. At the end of the quarter or year, a specialist will obtain the dosimeter data and interpret them. If the radiation plate shows a large amount of exposure above the threshold, an alarm will sound to alert people to stay away from the environment. The device has helped prevent and save many people from potential complications from constant exposure to radiation.
In addition, as the distance increased, the dose rate decreased and, consequently, the radiation detected by the application decreased. Radiation can be used in a variety of applications, and approximately 23 million workers are occupationally exposed to ionizing radiation worldwide6.When it comes to detecting radiation from tissue, you can convert these factors to get the right results. This work aims to inform a detailed investigation of a well-reviewed smartphone application for radiation dosimetry that is available for popular smartphone devices under a calibration protocol that is typically used for commercial calibration of radiation detectors. Advanced image sensors installed in now-ubiquitous smartphones can be used to detect ionizing radiation in addition to visible light.
The advantage of using a smartphone application in radiation detection is that it is cheap, easy to operate and accessible, since many people own smartphones. In the long term, regulating radiation by distributing high-quality radiation badges to your employees minimizes risk before it's too late. The advantage of using a smartphone application in radiation detection is that it is cheap, easy to operate and accessible, since many people have smartphones. This error analysis quantitatively shows that the RadioActivityCounter application can effectively function as a radiation detector at high radiation doses; however, at low doses, the application returns a high error percentage as presented in Fig.
To use smartphones as radiation alarms, smartphone radiation responses must be carefully characterized. They can be replaced irregularly by using a smartphone app to detect harmful radiation, such as that caused by gamma rays. Alpha radiation cannot be detected because it is blocked by the mobile phone case, lens and cover. An RIID is a radiation detector with the ability to analyze the energy spectrum of radiation, in order to identify the specific radioactive material (radionuclide) that emits the radiation.
This chamber contains air and an electrical conductor, as well as a low-voltage central anode to help detect radiation. Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) imaging sensors used in smartphone cameras, on the other hand, can detect photons of ionizing radiation, such as high-energy x-rays and gamma rays.8.
