VERNIER GO DIRECT RADIATION MONITOR
Vernier's Go Direct Radiation Monitor detects alpha, beta, gamma and X-ray radiation and can be used to explore radiation statistics, measure the rate of nuclear decay and monitor radon progeny.
This easy-to-use sensor consists of a Geiger-Mueller tube mounted in a small, rugged plastic case. A thin window protected by a metal screen allows alpha radiation to be detected, along with beta and gamma. Each new detection is indicated by a flashing red LED indicator and can also be accompanied by an optional audio signal.
The Vernier Go Direct Radiation Monitor can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Determine the half-life of an isotope
• Investigate radiation shielding
• Detect background radiation sources
COMPATIBILITY CHECK and Set Up Guide for your Vernier sensor, interface and software:
Vernier Go Direct® sensors now integrate with Microsoft Excel Data Streamer to bring real-time data into Excel. This integration supports all Vernier Go Direct Sensors using the latest version of Vernier Graphical Analysis™ 4 app.
Rechargeable Battery — Ready When You Are
The Vernier Go Direct™ robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ 4 app Should the battery run low simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting — no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

ACSPH030 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Alpha, beta and gamma radiation have sufficient energy to ionise atoms
ACSPH029 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Each species of radionuclide has a specific halflife
ACSPH028 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Some nuclides are unstable and spontaneously decay, emitting alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation over time until they become stable nuclides
