Elementary particles

(Science: radiobiology)

at a nuclear-energy level: electron & positron - seem to be stable, proton - thought to be stable, life greater than 10^30 sec, neutron - decays in ?6 min unless its in a nucleus, which often extends its life.

Other particles important for nuclear energy: Muon, neutrino (m, e, tau), photon, Muonic atoms, Pi-meson antiparticles
