20:03 Strontium dosimeter created in Belarus

It was impossible to detect strontium before. Scientists from Sakharov International State University have created a spectrometer of beta and gamma rays of humans.

According to the scientists, this device has no national analogues and its qualities surpass those of devices created in other countries. Nowadays radiation doses are formed due to a long-term accumulation of radioactive nuclides. As a rule, it is strontium-90.

This dangerous element accumulates in the skeletal system and it practically impossible to remove. The majority of dosimeters detect gamma rays while the sign of strontium-90 is beta rays.
