Isotope thickness gauges are actually transmission gauges. This means they transmit radiation through the material to be measured. Physics blessed us with an isotope (Am241) that emits constant gamma radiation at an energy level (60 keV) ideal for measuring steel. Thin steel blocks a little of the radiation, and thicker steel blocks most of it. […]
