A Small Geiger Counter Array


Abstract

The Balloon Assisted Stratospheric Experiments (BASE) program at DePauw University has flown Geiger counters on more than forty flights since November 2006. Currently, three RM-60 Geiger counters from Aware Electronics are used in the array. The signal from each counter is fed to a 555 based one-shot circuit to produce a clean pulse. The pulse outputs are processed by an array of Basic STAMP microprocessors from Parallax Corporation. Data is stored in the non-volatile memory of each STAMP microprocessor.
