Greenpeace Develops Innovative Way To See Radiation

Greenpeace has developed an innovative yet fairly simple way to visualize radiation.

We found our answer in a custom built LED light stick which, when connected to a Geiger counter, allows radiation levels to be measured and displayed in real-time. Take a long exposure photograph of a contaminated area and walk through it with this tool, and suddenly you have an undulating wall of light, exposing and visually mapping radiation in the environment.

The result allows people to “see” the radiation levels and creates an almost artistic photograph.
