    The liquid scintillation measurements were also used to evaluate the half-life of (m)Cd. The decay was followed for about 11 months and a half-life T(1/2)=(13) years was obtained. View. For isotopes that decay by gamma and alpha emission, and beta emissions where the target isotope cannot be reduced to a suitable chemical form for LCS or gas counting, the use of solid scintillation .
