PUMAs glass fibers contain lithium-6 atoms and cerium ions that detect the presence of radionuclides. The neutrons react with the lithium isotope to leave an ionization trail thro...

Chemical evidence proves the old adage, Birds of a feather flock together

... A small percentage of carbon atoms carry an extra neutron and therefore are known as carbon 13. Hydrogen 1 (the most common hydrogen isotope) only has one proton and no neutrons, but a rarer form deuterium contains both a proton and neutron. When Chamberlain and his co-workers analyzed warbler feathers c...
