Hi, I want to test this radiation detector http://www.teviso.com/en/products/radiation-sensor-rd3024.htm

The problem is we don't have strong nuclear radiation sources or even weak ones , can i mimic the radiation ?? For example can i use Microwave sources or RF field or other radiation sources to test my sensor , if yes provide me with a method

Your Fast Replay is Appreciated

You need a source of ionizing radiation. Typically for regulatory monitoring a small check source is provided to assure proper operation when used. Such sources should not require a license for possession of the source (perhaps this depend on the country) . see for example

This detector does not seem to have a direct readout, only providing a square wave pulse output for each detected radiation particle. So how do you propose to actually measure the count rate and calibrate the instrument?
