Geiger counters are so last summer. Lasers can detect radioactive material too, y'know

Re: "It begins with shining an infrared laser beam near a radioactive source"

If this method works then there is a chance for some improvement over a Geiger counter. I'm imagining here the origin of the laser beam does not need to be near the radiation source, whereas a Geiger counter does. If this is the case then scanning could be done from a distance and presumably at speed.
