I have a PhD in nuclear engineering my career is in R&D, including a new radiation detector designed to be low cost and better than a Geiger counter. Ask me anything about that project, radiation detection general, related topics like nuclear ...
I have a PhD in nuclear engineering and a decade of radiation detector R&D experience. Ask me anything about radiation detection or any related topic, like nuclear energy, X-ray imaging, or anything else you can think of and I'll do my best to answer.
I'll answer as many questions as I can today and tomorrow, starting now.
You can read more about my most recent project here, there's also a little bit of general information there:
Here there is also some more general information (see "Understanding Radiation"):
The requested proof that it's really me is here (you can also see me on the kickstarter page):
I did some AMAs a few months ago while it was still being developed and the feedback I got was extremely valuable to the process. A few things have evolved since then - at the time there was no energy-compensation in the dose calculation, but as time went on I learned that this was a really necessary feature, so I added it on. The screen is also bigger with a far richer range of display options. Some other smaller things changed as well but the basic idea is the same.
