The long-lived radionuclide 93Zr t1/2 = (1.61 +- 0.05) Ma plays an important role in nuclear astrophysics and nuclear technology. In stellar environments, it is mainly produced by neutron capture on the stable nuclide 92Zr. On Earth high amounts of radioactive 93Zr are produced in nuclear power plants directly from 235U fission, but also by neutron capture on 92Zr, as Zr-alloys are commonly used as cladding for nuclear fuel rods.
