  • hafnium
  • The researchers identified two main isotopic systems in the region's rocks: one in which the element lutetium decays to hafnium, and another in which samarium decays to neodymium. (phys.org)
  • The team then measured the ratios of strontium to neodymium, and lutetium to hafnium, to determine the presence of a collision, keeping track of where each zircon was originally found (along the region's northern or southern border). (phys.org)
  • Nuclear
  • Lutetium is also found in the products of nuclear fission . (britannica.com)
  • Bruce Power, the power company based in Bruce County, is teaming up with Kinectrics, an electricity services firm, and Framatome, a global nuclear services business, to help produce Lutetium-177, a medical isotope that is used to destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unaffected. (edmontonsun.com)
  • Products labelled with these isotopes can be manufactured centrally at the Paul Scherrer Institute and distributed to Nuclear Medical Centers within Switzerland or even abroad, the range of distribution being limited by the half-life of the isotope. (psi.ch)
  • In addition, increasing need in emerging markets, production of radiopharmaceuticals from cyclotrons, efficient diagnosis and treatments, emerging radio isotopes and replacement of old/traditional equipments are the opportunities likely to propel the growth of nuclear medicine market.

  • researchers
  • From their analysis of the literature, the researchers found that rocks high in lutetium and samarium isotopes likely formed before Australia collided with the islands. (phys.org)
  • nucleus
  • An element, therefore, can have several variants, called isotopes, which differ slightly in the composition of the nucleus. (sciencing.com)
  • occurs
  • Lutetium usually occurs in association with the element yttrium [ citation needed ] and is sometimes used in metal alloys and as a catalyst in various chemical reactions. (rug.nl)
  • found
  • The team found a very clear signature: Rocks older than 50 million years contained exactly the same ratio of isotopes in both the northern and southern samples. (phys.org)
  • element
  • He chose the name lutecium for the new element, but in 1949 the spelling of element 71 was changed to lutetium. (rug.nl)
  • Natural
  • For odd-numbered elements this is the isotope with highest natural abundance. (mri-q.com)
  • However, carbon's ¹³C isotope (natural abundance 1.07%) contains one extra neutron, resulting in a net spin ( I = ½) and permitting its use in NMR. (mri-q.com)
  • targets
  • Betalutin, the first of a new generation of antibody-radionuclide-conjugates (ARCs), is a mouse antibody that targets the CD37 molecule attached to the beta-emitting isotope lutetium-177 (Lu-177). (lymphomanewstoday.com)
  • production
  • We want to ensure Canada remains at the forefront of global isotope development and production," Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power's President and CEO, said in a release following an announcement in Etobicoke. (edmontonsun.com)
  • PET is the fastest growing segment at mid single digit CAGR from 2017 to 2024 due to increase in adoption of cyclotron for production of PET isotopes increasing its availability. (marketresearch.com)
  • form
  • Aqueous solutions of most lutetium salts are colorless and form white crystalline solids upon drying, with the common exception of the iodide. (rug.nl)
  • less
  • Though lutetium composes only trace mounts (less than 0.1 percent by weight) of the commercially important minerals bastnasite and monazite , it has proved feasible to extract the metal as a by-product. (britannica.com)
  • various
  • Yb-171 in an excited state has been proposed as an optical frequency standard, while the other Yb isotopes are used in various physics experiments. (deluxegases.com)
