    Abstract

    In this paper, the radiation induced air fluorescence is investigated for several different types of radiation sources, including high brightness laser sources, X-ray radiation sources, and alpha radiation sources. First, the air fluorescence spectrum with three spectral bandpass filters induced by the high intensity laser was analyzed from spectrometer detector. Second, the air fluorescence intensity induced by different types of radiation are measured from photomultiplier tube detector and followed by discussion. Finally, the potential application of radiation induced air fluorescence for the radiation detection is addressed.
