The main finality of the Radiation Sensor Board for Arduino is to help people in Japan to measure the levels of radiation in their everyday life after the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami struck Japan in March 2011 and cause the nuclear radiation leakages in Fukushima. We want to give the chance to measure by themselves this levels instead of trusting in the general advises which are being broadcasted. The usage of this sensor board along with the affordable and easy to use Arduino platform helps people to get radiation values from specific places.

    The photo appears to show a LND-712 tube which has a thin mica end window for detecting alpha particles (beta and gamma radiation do not need this window). It is worth pointing out, if you use this type of tube, the end window is VERY FRAGILE and if broken, the tube is useless. For use, the board should be packaged to protect the end window; commonly done with a fine wire mesh screen. (You do need to leave some openings or the alpha particles will be shielded.)
