Geiger counting system (Economy model) [ TYPE : GC 601A ]
Geiger Counting System, type GC601A manufactured by NUCLEONIX is an Advanced Technology based, economy model, designed around eight bit microcontroller chip. This system with accessiories is an ideal choice for teaching / demonstrating various G.M. Experiments, as part of Experimental Physics lab to U.G., P.G.Science, U.G. Engineering Physics students. Other streams such as Radiation Physics, Radiochemistry, Radiation Biology and Agricultural Sciences can also use this system.
This counting system can be used for carrying out a number of Nuclear Physics experiments such as Characteristics curve of a G.M. Counter, to verify the inverse square law for Gamma Radiation, Absorption of Beta Radiations, efficiency of G.M.Counter for Beta Radiation, determination of the back scattering factor of a material for beta rays etc,.
