A recent paper has come out in the journal of Building and Environment reflecting the work of colleagues in WP2 of RadoNorm from HES-SO University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland. The study on Performance evaluation of radon active sensors and passive dosimeters at low and high radon concentrations assessed passive dosimeters and three grades of active radon monitors at low (300 Bq/m3) and high (2000 – 3000 Bq/m3) radon concentrations. Results showed that performance of research-grade sensors was better than that of consumer-grade sensors. There were observed to be generally higher disparities at low radon levels for the consumer-grade monitors, and passive dosimeters were more robust and reliable with longer exposure time and higher radon levels. Details of the study can be found in the open-access publication online.

This and more publications can be found on the RadoNorm website.
