Is it possible to turn my smartphone camera into a cosmic ray detector? What are the detailed steps to follow in performing this task? Are there any safety measures to consider when performing this task? I also would like to know if all smartphone cameras detect cosmic ray. Thank you.
Steps to follow to use your camera as a cosmic ray detector
Yes, it is possible to turn your Smartphone camera into a “Cosmic Ray Detector”. For this, you have to download two software’s from the internet. There are few steps to perform this and these steps are as follows:
Firstly, download the two applications “Data Logger” and “DECO” from the internet.
After that, cover your Smartphone’s camera lens with the duct tape.
Then, place your Smartphone anywhere in any location, but put the face of your Smartphone’s screen up.
No, there are not any safety measures to be considered when performing this task from your Smartphone camera.
No, all the Smartphone’s camera does not detect “Cosmic Ray”. Only “Android” and “iphone” Smartphone’s can detect the “Cosmic Ray”.
Hope this answer will help you a lot.
