Short summary
We present a new real-time experimental setup for analysing in continuum radon emissions over variable stress-strain regimes. The setup consists of a radon accumulation chamber that can host large cylindrical rock samples and is connected to a RAD7 radon monitor. The radon signal is enhanced using a heating system. The accumulation chamber is then placed into a uniaxial testing apparatus that allows obtaining a variety of deformation conditions.
