Curium-248 standard neutron source

, : Curium-248 standard neutron source. Applied Radiation and Isotopes 53(4-5): 833-835

A new standard neutron source based on curium-248 has been developed, prepared, and certified. The curium-248 isotope is more long-lived than californium-252. The active core of this source is a pellet made of an alloy of platinum with curium. The measured full neutron yield for this source is 2.30 x 10(4) s(-1) with 4% error at 0.95 confidence.

In this study, we found that the axial response curve of divided-aperture confocal microscopy has a shift while the point detector has a transverse offset from the optical axis. Based on this, a novel laser divided-aperture differential confocal s...

The dorsal lingual surface of the lesser dog-faced fruit bat was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Filiform (Fi), fungiform (Fu) and vallate papillae (V) were observed. The Fi papillae were distributed over the entire dorsal surface...
