radiation detection with Arduino: cumulative counter (2)

After modifying the arduino program for measure radiation with cooking-hacks.com’s radiation board in a previous post, I realized that it wasn’t still perfect for background radiation measures: Background radiation measures are typically of very low values and given the stochastic nature of radiation (see graph on previous post), it takes some minutes to achieve a … Continue reading
