Californium Applications





Applications

252Cf is used as neutron startup source, in radiography and radioscopy, for neutron logging in oil search, in medicine etc. (1 g of 252Cf emits 3x1012 neutrons per second).

Californium isotopes are used for research purposes in nuclear physics and radiochemistry without requiring radiological defense. It is a high toxic element, the maximum permissible concentration value of 252Cf in open water basins and in workshop air is 133.2 and 4.1x10-6 Bq/l correspondingly
