MEASURING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS WITH JUST AN ARDUINO AND A PIECE OF WIRE

Electromagnetic interference problems can be a real headache to debug. If you need to prove what causes your WiFi to slow down or your digital TV signal to drop, then the ability to measure electromagnetic fields (EMF) can be a big help. Professional equipment is often very expensive, but building an EMF detector yourself is …

Radioactivity detection using very simple ionization chamber and a single J-FET transistor

Today I will show a very simple ionization chamber that can detect radioactivity. I was able to detect with it ionizing radiation from a smoke detector (Am241 isotope). It’s also immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI) due to a good shielding. This device doesn’t explicitly use any power supply. It’s connected to a multimeter set to measure resistance, …
