Californium-252 (Cf-252) has the second-highest atomic mass of any element and is the only isotope that spontaneously emits neutrons -- an ideal property for the identification and evaluation of materials and geological formations.

Scientists at the University of California Radiation Laboratory
in Berkeley discovered this element in 1950, and since then californium-252 has been applied towards nuclear fission initiation in nuclear reactors, material scanning (such as PGNAA in coal and cement), and more.

In addition to these, californium-252 is very useful in analyzing geological factors at oil well logging and borehole sites. As an ideal neutron emissions source, Cf-252 can help geologists analyze boreholes and create specific plans for safely and efficiently drilling the area.

  • How Cf-252 saves a significant amount of time during well logging processes, streamlining and making them instantaneous
  • The power of Cf-252 as a data source, providing detailed insights about rock characteristics, potential liquid presence, and borehole dimensional properties
  • Additional advantages for well logging applications that are unique to Cf-252, and how FTC is able to customize these neutron sources to your equipment and requirements
