  • SCK CEN - Smartphones als ‘toevallige dosimeters’ (2021)
    14 July '21

    Smartphones are ‘casual dosimeters’

    Smartphones can serve as ‘casual dosimeters’ in radiological incidents. By reading the resistors inside them, researchers can accurately determine the individual dose of radiation sustained afterwards. This was demonstrated in a large-scale experiment by SCK CEN. “This is essential to ensure that, in case of high doses due to an accidental situation, medical aid is provided immediately,” emphasises Olivier Van Hoey, dosimetry expert at SCK CEN.
