Although rarely present in the atmosphere due to its short half-life (T = 55 s), Thoron can have a high concentration in places with high thorium content and thus represents a major issue for radiation protection.

Several European research programs take the Thoron issue and its influence on radon measurement seriously.

Find out in this White Paper how the AlphaGUARD, Bertin’s portable radon monitor, is used to measure Thoron and Radon separately.
