A common method of measuring working level exposures is to collect a sample on a filter and measure the alpha or beta activity; however, this approach is time consuming and not always satisfactory. A . The alpha track detectors used by us in such measurements were the CR track detectors (Page, England, Ltd.). These plastic detectors were included in proper alpha measurement devices. These Cited by: 5. A radon monitor based on a 3 mm × 3 mm alpha-detecting IC fabricated in a foundry CMOS process is reported. The alpha-detecting IC consists of a 16 × 16 array of pn junction diodes (sense diodes. Radon may be second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer. The combination of smoking and radon exposure results in an especially serious health risk. The risk of lung cancer due to indoor radon .
