Data Collection of Various Types of EM Radiation

Hello all, I'm starting a university research project where I would like to know the amount of EM radiation emitted from an experimental device. I would like to test anything from microwaves to x-rays. For this project I am considering the use of arduino for this purpose. I have a couple of questions though. 1. I believe I can use phototransistors for visible light and IR phototransistors for IR. I believe ML8511 would be used for UV. However I have yet to find sensors for x-rays and microwaves. Any suggestions? 2. How can I collect data from these sensors? What would they represent? (Counts? energy?)

What I imagine is an apparatus with all these sensors and with each run of the code, there would be returned values that correspond to each type of EM radiation.

and as UnoWatt stated, google or rather DuckDuckGo is your friend...

If your questions are to general you usually don't get helpful answers... If you ask questions like has anybody used sensor XYZ and did you like it, you'll get plenty of answers (usually)

My apologies UnoWatt!

I assumed universal truth in that... When I do research into "what have others tried before" I use the internet, would be happy to know what sources you use.
