Radioactive Decay: Audio Data Collection
Struthers, Allan
PRIMUS, v19 n4 p388-395 2009
Many phenomena generate interesting audible time series. This data can be collected and processed using audio software. The free software package "Audacity" is used to demonstrate the process by recording, processing, and extracting click times from an inexpensive radiation detector. The high quality of the data is demonstrated with a simple statistical analysis. (Contains 7 figures.)
