Seeing and Recording Alpha Radiation at a Distance

Summary

The detection of alpha radiation is typically limited by the proximity of the sensor to the contaminated surface (typically 1 - 2cm). A method of detecting, quantifying and providing a visual record of the location of alpha radiation (or characteristics which evidence the presence of alpha radiation) at distance (e.g. tens of centimetres to greater than 1m) is sought.
