The half-life of 20F was precisely measured to be 11.0160(160) seconds, with careful analysis of systematic error, largely due to contamination. This resolved a long standing discrepancy, further blurred by a 2018 measurement of the same half-life [M. Hughes et al., PRC 97 054328 (2018)]. Learn more
