Hi! Nice to see you're checking out our wiki pages. As you have probably seen on our website www.medusa-sensing.com, we are the people that make radiation sensing systems. As our marketing guy tends to tell people: "We create gammaray survey systems for geophysical applications. Subsea, on land and in the air. Medusa In the year 2000 Medusa Explorations emerged as a spin-off from the nuclear physics lab of the University of Groningen with a mission: making scientific knowledge from the nuclear industry available for the geo-related industry. This mission was realized by conducting surveys, generating maps and by developing gamma-ray spectrometers. In the past years two companies emerged: Medusa Radiometrics and Medusa Explorations.
Medusa Radiometrics creates gamma-ray survey systems for geophysical applications and leads the way in the application of new detector materials and novel data analysis methods to make detectors smaller, more robust and user friendly".
Well, thats a mouth full...But we actually do try to make a difference with our sensing systems! By making them lighter, stronger, easier to handle etc etc.
Part of this journey is in making better software and hardware. But another important part is in creating a platform for (potential) users, like yourself. A platform that has information on our systems, on our software and on our technology. And info on "general" radiation-related topics. Feel free to have a look around!
Oh, and yes - we also use this site for our own purposes. For instance, to keep track of projects that we do with people around the world. However, as you will understand, for that part of the site you will need a username/password. You can't have them all...
For those of you that have an account on this wiki: you can select a project space via the SPACES dropdown menu on top of this page.
Medusa Explorations applies gamma-ray sensors for mapping properties of soil and sediment and is expert in developing application models for mapping grain size, texture and pollution of soils and sediments.
Now, the time has come to bring our developments and knowledge back to the scientific world. We (re)joined forces with KVI-CART of the University of Groningen. We invested in a PhD track on developing a gamma-ray spectrometer for drones. We started to share our knowledge on this WIKI site and...
we started The Medusa Institute.
