Environmental KIT - Gamma Radiation Measurements


  • Embedded web interface with spectrum analysis tools
  • Based on Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) matrix coupled to a CsI Scintillator
  • Well suited for:
    • Energy Calibration
    • Environmental background measurements
    • Passive Radon measurements
    • Samples and Photopeaks identification
    • Environmental Sample measurements


Environmental radioactivity is all around us. The public imagination often associates a negative feeling to this natural phenomenon. To increase the familiarity with this field CAEN designed a dedicated educational kit, based on Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) matrix coupled to a CsI Scintillator. Teaching and training experiences are performed starting from system calibration in terms of energy and by acquiring gamma spectra to study the emission and the composition of different samples.
