  • Description
  • Scope of Supply
  • Downloads and Documents


The intensity of the backscattering of β rays is investigated as a function of different materials.


  • Especially understandable and didactically prepared description of the experiment (relevance to everyday life, etc.) including protocol questions.
  • Future-oriented teaching: Integration into digital science lessons with tablets or smartphones.
  • Increased motivation of students by using the intuitive measureAPP.
  • Increased media competence.


The students investigate the backscattering of beta rays by detecting the scattering rate on different materials using the Geiger-Müller counter tube.

Learning Objectives

With the help of the experiment, the students determine the dependence of the intensity of the backscattering on the material used.
