The process: Laurentis will extract He-3 from
Applications: Laurentis noted that He-3 has a wide range of uses, including:
As a medical isotope, He-3 is a non-toxic inhalant used to produce detailed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of airways in the lung.
In border security, it is used in portal monitors to detect radioactive materials.
In neutron research, it is used in colliders to study anti-matter, one of the great mysteries of the universe.
In quantum computing, He-3 is used to reach near-absolute-zero temperatures, which reduces noise or interference in calculations; it is similarly used as a super-coolant in cryogenics.
It is also a potential fuel for fusion reactors.
Partner wanted: Laurentis is looking to develop a long-term commercial agreement with a company to further refine and distribute the rare isotope to customers around the world in health care, security, and advanced research.
