This device measures the dose or output of ionising radiation. It registers the amount of charged ions emitted with the radiation. This measurement process is called dosimetry. A voltage drop is initiated between two electrodes inside the counter chamber. In case there are ions in gas, a measurable current runs between two electrodes.
