A portable device for measuring radiation fields and detecting the presence of contamination. Synonym: survey instrument.
a handheld instrument used to measure the electric or magnetic field at a particular point
a portable device used to measure radiation by counting either the number of air ionizations in a GM tube or light flashes produced in a NaI crystal as a result of radiation's interaction with the detector
a portable, handheld, electronic instrument consisting of three components used to detect ionizing radiation
An instrument used to measure radiation, typically radiation exposure dose. The instrument usually consists of an energy compensated Geiger Müller tube and associated circuitry which causes a meter deflection or other readout in the presence of ionizing radiation.
An instrument used for detecting radioactive material or for measuring exposure. Different survey meters include: ZnS(Ag) Scintillator â€“ measures alpha radiation contamination NaI Scintillator â€“ measures gamma radiation exposure Ion Chamber â€“ measures beta/ gamma radiation exposure Geiger-Muller Tube â€“ measures alpha/ beta/ gamma radiation contamination and beta/ gamma radiation exposure Pressurized Ion Chamber - measures gamma radiation exposure
is any portable radiation detection instrument especially adapted for inspecting an area to establish the existence and amount of radioactive material present.
