Ytterbium-169 Industrial Radioisotopes

Ytterbium 169 (Yb-169) is used in applications where a high quality radiography is required and where the working thickness of steel is in the range of 4-15mm. It offers the added benefit of emitting low energy photons resulting in smaller controlled areas being required. It lends itself well to close proximity radiography

Energy Range (KeV) 63-308
