  • How to Obtain and Extract Americium

Other detectors I have disassembled have the americium plated onto a small disc." And then you said, "it is safe if kept in the glass bottle," but there is no picture of any glass bottle, or anything beyond the metal disc. How was the reader supposed to know what glass bottle you're talking about?
