    Hello everyone. Have somebody ever dealt with Sn-125? Could you give any information on the usage of this radionuclide?
    Thank you in advance.

    According to Wikipedia, it's got a half-life of about 10 days, so it's about a million times more radioactive than the radium that killed Marie Curie. Be careful.

    Thank you for the suggestion, I'm aware of dangers arising from the source, but I can't find any information what is the field of usage of Sn-125.
