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.
