The compact disk as radon detector--a laboratory study of the method.

Abstract

The radon absorption ability and the track etch properties of the polycarbonate material of commercial compact disks make them very useful as sensitive retrospective 222Rn detectors. The basic idea is to remove, after exposure, a surface layer that is thicker than the range of the alpha particles of the 222Rn and 220Rn progenies and to count the… (More)
