Title: High sensitivity detectors for measurement of diffusion, emanation and low activity of radon

Today's underground experiments require ultra-low background conditions. One of the most important source of background is radon. It is necessary to suppress it and consequently to detect very low radon concentration. In the frame of SuperNEMO collaboration experimental setups for measurement of low radon activity, radon diffusion through shielding foils and radon emanation from construction materials have been constructed in IEAP CTU in Prague and the obtained results are presented. The application of Timepix device in radon detection is briefly discussed.
