We offer a variety of product research, testing, and monitoring services as well.
Here we provide you with all you need to know about our neutron sources and capabilities for nuclear applications.
About bet36365体育投注- 252 Neutron Sources at 前沿科技公司
In 1950, the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California created the first 5,000 Cf-252 atoms using a cyclotron to bombard a microgram of curium with alpha particles.
In 1954, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory successfully produced weighable amounts of Cf-252 using a 高通量同位素反应堆. The laboratory produces approximately 25 mg of the isotope annually.
Protecting Cf-252 sources during their transport and implementation is vital. 在美国联邦贸易委员会, our californium-252 isotope is effectively encapsulated within 定制中子屏蔽壁, which is made with our highly effective water extended polyester (WEP) material. When shipping Cf-252, our a类放射性集装箱 provide safe storage. We make our protective storage and shipping containers in-house to ensure the highest standards.
Our single-encapsulated Cf-252 source is part of the 模型10 series, a capsule commonly implemented within multilayer enclosures. 美国.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) certified our 模型10 as Special Form, and the U.S. 核 Regulatory Commission has approved it for general use.
Made with all NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) traceable materials, the capsule is zircaloy-2 or 304L stainless steel with a TIG-welded enclosure.
The 型号100 series is a double-encapsulated source that includes a 模型10 series inner capsule.
The outer capsule uses stainless steel 304L or zircalloy-2 materials, 具有各种可定制的选项.
