Se-79 halflife[edit]

Elsewhere it is reported as 1.13 million years and other figures. Is one figure newer or more accurate? --JWB 07:06, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Remeasurement of the Half-Life of 79Se with the Projectile X-Ray Detection Method from 2001 gives (2.95 ± 0.38) × 105 y (the figure already in this article but not in Selenium) as a new measurement superseding 1.1 × 106 y. --JWB 10:00, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
To the best of my knowledge, the value of (2.95 ± 0.38) × 105 y is the state-of-the-art figure for the halflife of 79Se. This value is presently used for the safety calculations in the Belgian program for radioactive waste disposal in Boom Clay. Shinkolobwe (talk) 10:29, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Great, are there any references using the updated halflife? Also, I'm curious what yield is being assumed for 79Se; I didn't find that in the previous reference. --JWB (talk) 22:28, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
