Python GUI program for Geiger counters like GMC-300/320/500/600
GeigerLog is a Python based GUI program to work with GQ Electronic's GMC-300 / 320 and now also GMC-500 /600 Geiger counters. Available as "scripts" to run where a proper Python environment exists, or as "bundle", which brings its own Python environment (but currently runs on Linux only). GeigerLog allows reading of Geiger counter data, logging to file, printing to screen and plotting as graph, showing Count Rate vs. Time, both in various, selectable units. The history stored on the Geiger counter's internal memory can be extracted, analyzed and graphed in the same way. The graph is live auto-updated and allows various customization. Time ranges for analysis can be set manually or per left/right mouse click. GeigerLog can control some functions of a connected counter (limited to GMC-3xx counters!). Advanced analysis of the data now permits count rate histograms with Poisson fit for quality control of data, and FFT analysis for any periodic signal hidden within the data.
Virtual Radiation Detection and Measurement Laboratory Software
Radiation detection and measurement education is necessary for a wide variety of people working with radiation. The equipment and laboratory setup needed for delivering this education are expensive and difficult to assemble due to the large variety of the type of experiments that are desirable to cover. For a basic education one needs to have gamma, beta, alpha and neutron sources, at least one detector to detect each type of radiation and other supplemental instrumentation to perform experiments. Although the radiation exposure due to these radioactive sources in an education laboratory is low, shielding and a private secured place is needed. Nearly two hundred thousand dollars is needed to construct such a basic laboratory described as above. In order to overcome these difficulties, a model of a basic Radiation Detection Laboratory has been created to provide a virtual environment for designing and simulating such experiments.
