Ludlum Measurements, Inc. manufactures many different types of detectors to measure
alpha, beta, gamma, and neutron radiation.

Geiger-Mueller (GM) Detectors employ an electric field that causes the tube to discharge
when radiation ionizes a neutral gas molecule. Depending on the construction they can be
used to detect alpha, beta, and/or gamma radiation. These detectors are popular due to
their low cost and ease of operation. However, they do have a long dead time and are not
capable of energy discrimination.

Other types of detectors are Proportional Detectors and Scintillation Detectors.

Common Specifications for all Detectors:
Connector: Series "C" (others available)
Construction: Aluminum housing with beige powder coat paint
Temperature Range: -4º F to 122º F (-20º C to 50º C). May be certified for operation from -
40º F to 150º F (-40º C to 65º C).

Note: All efficiencies and sensitivities are typical and different detectors may vary.
