Half-life (radiological) The term 'Half-life (radiological)' as it applies to the area of nuclear science can be defined as ' The time required for half the atoms of a particular radioisotope to decay into another isotope. A specific half-life is a characteristic property of each radioisotope. Measured half-lives range from millionths of a second to billions of years, depending on the stability of the nucleus. Radiological half-life is related to, but different from, the biological half-life and the effective half-life. '.
