Geiger Counter Wand



Geiger Counter Wand

The Geiger Counter wand has a thin mica window that allows the detection of alpha radiation as well as beta, and gamma radiation. Operating range is 450-600 volts, the recommended voltage is 500 volts.


The physical dimensions of the wand are approximately .85" diameter and 5.75" long. Approximately three feet of shielded cable connects the wand and a mini din plug.

Radiation Shields for Wands


Radiation Shields for Wands

These radiation shields friction fit on the open end of the Geiger Counter wand. Each shield helps to block radiation from reaching the internal GM tube inside the wand.


The shields are useful in performing nuclear tests and experiments.


The Screen shield is an open mesh nylon screen that allows all radiation including alpha to pass through. The paper shield blocks alpha radiation, while permitting beta and gamma radiation. The aluminum shield attenuates beta radiation and the lead shield attenuates gamma radiation. Shields may be purchased separately or in a set.

Geiger Counter Apps : Geiger Bot & iGeiger



Geiger Bot is a companion app for Geiger counters, providing you with a toolkit for recording, analyzing, and sharing Geiger counter data.
Geiger Counter Apps GeigerBot and iGeiger
Whether you need a numeric display for an old analog counter, graphing and extensive logging for even a digital counter, or online automated data sharing via Pachube, Geiger Bot can be of use.

Geiger Bot just works. As soon as you start up the app, Geiger Bot will get to work without any configuration necessary. This is done using adaptive signal processing and your device's microphone input. Geiger Bot also supports a direct line-in connection via the headset jack.

Geigerbot is a free iPhone app. For more info, or to download click here.


iGeiger is a ratemeter program. It uses the microphone to detect the clicks from your geiger counter (or other device) and display the Counts Per Minute (CPM).

The measurement period can be set between 1 and 3600 seconds, and readings can be optionally normalized to one minute (60 seconds). The displayed value is grayed out until an entire measurement period's worth of readings has been accumulated.

The minimum required volume of a click to be detected (threshold) can be set, as well as a delay time between clicks.


iGeiger is an iPhone app. For more info, or to download click here.
