For underground particle physics experiments, noble gas radon from U-chain decay series could be a source of serious background events. We have developed a high sensitivity detector for radon using electrostatic collection and PIN photodiode. Recently, we have developed a new type of radon detector. We report basic performance of the new 80L radon detector.
