177Hf Information

Hafnium is a silvery lustrous metallic transition element. It is used in tungsten alloys in filaments and electrodes. This element acts also as a neutron absorber. Hafnium was reported by Urbain firstly in 1911, its existence was finally established by D. Coster in 1923 and by G.C. de Hevesy at the same time. Hafnium has 36 isotopes. 6 of them are naturally occurring, 5 of which are stable.

Hafnium is used in reactor control rods because of its ability to absorb neutrons.
