is a Polish science project using the distributed computing capabilities of the BOINC platform. The main goal of the project is to create a free and continuously updated map of radiation levels available for everyone, by gathering information about gamma radiation using sensors connected to the computers of volunteers willing to participate in the project. Project is completely non-commercial, participating will be free of charge (excluding cost of detector) and the software will be licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Geiger detector description

How Geiger Detector works.

To familiarize You with the way our detector works I will discuss the diagram of the prototype built by Szopler.

The device can be presented as 3 blocks:

  • Power supply/inverter which powers the GM-20 Lamp with voltage 400V,
  • Impulse forming block, which will provide impulses for the central unit,
  • Central Unit, responsible for communication between detector and computer.
