Nickel (Ni) is a silverly metal used in the manufacturing of batteries and coins. Nickel-63 is an artificial product of Nickel-62, one of the original 5 nickel isotops.
Nickel-63 is produced artificially through the capture of enriched Nickel-62 neutrons.
Nickel-63 emits beta particles with a maximum range of 5 cm in the air. These particles have a half-life of 100.1 years.
