Potential applications of solar cells include a [gamma]-ray dose-rate meter [2], a monitor of high [gamma]-ray dose rates [3], and determination of gamma dose by monocrystalline silicon n+pp++ solar cell [4].
The NukAlert is a dose-rate meter of moderate cost, small enough to be carried on a keychain, that emits audible "chirps" indicating dose levels in the range of 0.1 R/hr to >50 R/hr, levels that could be expected from a nuclear detonation or radiation dispersal device (RDD or "dirty bomb").
These are dose-rate meters, so that cumulative personal exposure must be estimated by multiplying the dose-rate by the time exposed.
