    Many thanks for the ion chamber building instructions. I built the ion chamber and used it during a lecture about radon with experiments at the events “Highlights of Physics 2022 in Regensburg, Bavaria”. If you like you can watch my lecture on youtube:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEe69a3kaN0

    I am proofing that radon emanates from Uranium minerals by sucking a few milliliters of air from a jar containing uranium minerals and injecting it into the ion chamber. This yields plenty of impulses that are registered with Theremino Geiger.

    I added a link to the building instructions at the end of my presentation so that anyone interested could build it as well.

    I am in concern however that building it according to the building instructions will not succeed. The high voltege converter did not oscillate before i changed C1 33pF to 3,3nF and R2 100k to 10k. This components connect collector of T2 to base of T1. The current through the orginal components is too low to switch T1 off.

    Could anyone confirm that there is a mistake in the schematics ?

    Best regards from Regensburg

      Dear Juergen,
      I designed that scheme and tried it for a long time. Also many copies have already been built and all have always worked well with the schematic components i.e. C1 = 100pF and R2 = 100K

      If it doesn’t work well it is probably due to one of the following causes:
      – T1 transistor which is not a BC846B (or similar with Beta of at least 300)
      – D1 which is not a 1N4148 but perhaps a 4001?
      – Long wire mounting (maybe you haven’t mounted it with SMD components on the PCB recommended by us?
      – Diodes from DZ1 to DZ5 which are not MMSZ5270 or similar but with very low loss and low capacitance.
      – D3, D4 and D5 different from RS1KL and therefore with too much parallel capacity
      – L1 with too much series resistance or with too much capacitance in parallel.
      – Supply voltage too low or 3.3 volt regulator defective
      – Some defective components.

      Furthermore, even in the SPICE simulations the circuit works perfectly with the values of 100pF and 100K

      Best regards
      Livio
