Abstract

This paper describes the design of a programmable stay-alone continuous radon monitoring system able to detect, count and store the amount of alpha particles with an energy of 5.49 MeV produced by the radioactive decay of environmental radon-222. It is included the electronic circuit design, the software development as well as the user interface and the hardware ensemble of all the system components.
