Radiation Theory

The radiation theory is supposedly a ghost will give off some kind of radiation. There are three kinds of radiation:

  • Alpha Particles: Helium nuclei, generally emitted from heavy elements such as uranium and thorium. Alpha particles only travel a few inches in the air, and can be stopped by a piece of paper. Outside the body, they are mostly harmless, as outer layers of dead skin completely block them. But if ingested, they can cause massive cellular and DNA damage, due to the fact that they blast a very small area with very high levels of radiation.
     
  • Beta Rays: Electrons moving at extremely high (often relativistic) speeds. They are more penetrating than alpha particles. They can pass through light elements, such as paper and aluminum (but only small thickness). Outside the body, they can cause damage to the eyes and skin. Inside, they can cause major damage, much like alpha particles.
     
  • Gamma Rays (X-Rays): Electromagnetic waves, similar to light, but at a much higher energy. X-rays are identical to gamma rays. They are much more penetrating than alpha or beta radiations. High energy gamma rays can pass through several inches of metal. They can cause damage to all parts of the body, due to the ability to penetrate skin, tissues, bones, and organs.

The meters to detect radiation is called a Geiger Counter. Our group uses 3 different types of Geiger Counters. Depending on what Geiger Counter you use the paranormal readings should occur at 1.5 r/hr to 3.5 r/hr. Also if the needle moves back and forth, that could also mean that there is paranormal activity in the area.

The following is a list of the Geiger counters currently being used by Long Island Paranormal Investigators:

Basic Geiger Counter

Geiger Counter

This Geiger Counter is very popular in the paranormal field. This one has different distance settings on it. It is easy to use, if you understand the concept behind the Geiger Counter. The paranormal readings for this meter occur at 1.5 r/hr to 3.5 r/hr, also if the needle starts to move back and forth there could be paranormal activity in the area.

   

IM-179 Geiger Counter

 

This Geiger Counter is a very good one as well as the other one. This one is a lot more compact and easy to handle. This meter does not have any distance settings on it. You will only get readings if you are within 10 feet of the area or object. When using this meter in the dark the needle and the readings glow in the dark. The paranormal readings for this meter occur at 1.5 r/hr to 15 r/hr, also if the needle starts to move back and forth there could be paranormal activity in the area.

Digital Geiger Counter

 

This Geiger counter is also good but you have to be within 2 feet of the area or object. There are no settings on this meter, you just push the button and take readings. The paranormal readings for this meter is 0.5mw/cm2 to 3.0mw/cm2. This unit is best for detecting microwave radiation.
