First publication on μDOSE+ capabilities is out

The μDOSE+ System is an enhanced version of the recognised μDOSE System, which boasts numerous new features, described in detail in the just-published article by Tudyka et al. (2024).

The publication focusses closely on the key components that make the μDOSE+ System an advanced tool for radioactivity estimation: a unique triple scintillator setup (active shielding) to reduce background counts and improve the precision of dose rate measurements accuracy; additional ~59 kg of high purity copper shielding and optimised counting chamber geometry (passive shielding) for α and β counting efficiency increase; employment of pulse classification algorithms enhanced by UMAP/HDBSCAN* machine learning for precise differentiation between radiation particles and sensitivity enhancement; active 222Rn and 220Rn removal system to eliminate overcounting and allowing increased sample mass.

The reported advancements contribute to a significant reduction in background in the β counting window, improved α and β counting efficiency and easier sample handling.
