Lawrencium Properties




Lawrencium is a radioactive synthetic chemical element. It was first synthesized by the nuclear-physics team lead by Albert Ghiorso on February 14, 1961, at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of the University of California. The first atoms of lawrencium were produced by bombarding a three-milligram target consisting of three isotopes of the element californium with boron-10 and boron-11 nuclei from the Heavy Ion Linear Accelerator. Lawrencium has no uses.
