How Bright is Tritium?

This tutorial may be exciting, here is the science:

Looking to Buy Tritium? 

Requirements for Great Photos:

  • Google Pixel 3 or above
  • Passion for Tritium
Can you accomplish these results w/o a Google Pixel? Yes, however, you need to play w/ your exposure settings.


Take into Consideration:

  • Lighting
  • Movement
  • Subject Brightness

Point and Shoot vs w/ Post Processing:

Most shots of tritium with this method are quite good and don't require ant postprocessing. There are circumstances that enhancements to the photos will result in a more desirable look.

How to take the photo:

line up your scene like this. Does it need to have all this fancy stuff? Not unless you intend to take great photos and youtube videos. =P


Take lots of photos changing one thing at a time. in this case, playing with the lighting.

No Backlighting:

Post Processing:

Sure, it looks great, is there more we can do?

Let's add some Pop:



Can't go wrong with Vintage:

Tritium Buying Guide

How to get your hands on some tritium? This guide will provide resources and what to look for when purchasing tritium. With the shipping disruptions of 2020, prices are all out of wack and should normalize.  Note: This guide will not cover the legal aspect as each country has its own laws and regulations. To learn more about the luminosity and spectral intensity of tritium vials, read my post here:  True Brightness of Tritium Vials   Spoiler: Tritium Safety Isotopes should be treated with respect, not only for the safety of yourself but also for the safety of others. The average amount of tritium inside a tritium vial has been observed as such: 3mm x 22.5mm tritium vial is roughly 0.1 curies (3.7 GBq) 5mm x 150mm tritium vial is approximately 1.8 curies (66.6 GBq) Is That Dangerous? It would be inappropriate to say anything other than 'Yes'; however, the risk is highly negligible. The EPA  touches on how tritium can enter and be processed through your body. Tritium is a low-ene

True Brightness of Tritium Vials

How Bright Are Tritium Vials? Describing the brightness of tritium can be difficult. People observe the luminescence differently and have differing opinions comparatively. So how can I  genuinely   share the luminosity of tritium vials and rank them?  Below I will showcase my findings using different techniques to put things into perspective. First things first, let's recognize the charting available today; maybe you have seen these or some variation of them:   These images are well over 10 years old and have several variants, some poorly photoshopped floating around. Let's make it our objective to reinvent this chart. Essential to take note, the charts above mostly agree on one thing, the ranking of 'output/yield' compared to each other by color. Spoil Warning , my results don't align with the common consensus listed above.  Take Amazing Photos of Tritium: Looking to

DIY Spectrometer

Tritium Vial DIY Spectrogram To make the best decisions regarding solar cells, understanding the emission of Tritium Vials is critical. A lab-grade spectrometer can cost $5k-$10k, a bit out of budget for this project. Instead, building a spectrometer isn't too terribly difficult. Consumer-grade tools are available that enable the home enthusiast to construct an estimated optical spectrometer that, for general purposes, can be used. The range of this DIY spectrometer is easily between 40nm to 700nm.  To learn more about the luminosity and spectral intensity of tritium vials, read my post here:  True Brightness of Tritium Vials   Spoiler: How to Build this Spectrometer? Credit, where credit is due, this 2016 project by Tony Butterfield,  is the root for this idea; the physical form was replicated to the best of my ability with some improvements.  The code was initially analyzed  and determined to be a guideline rather than a commitment .  The CMOS sensor and features in
