Detecting Only Gamma <?>

Post by bcn » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:37 am

Apologies for this noob question - is there a way to program an Arduino to select for only the Gamma rays (or Muons) detected?

Much thanks for your time and consideration!

Unfortunately this is not possible to do in software. You can try shielding the tube with some metal foil to decrease beta sensitivity.
