Mache (symbol ME from German Mache-Einheit, plural Maches) is an obsolete unit of volumic radioactivity named for the Austrian physicist Heinrich Mache. It was defined as the quantity of radon (ignoring its daughter isotopes; in practice, mostly radon-222) per litre of air which ionises a sustained current of 0.001 esu (0.001 StatAmpere).
