How does one produce Po-210 in a reactor? I used to measure Po-210 in lake sediments as a proxy for its parent Pb-210 to determine sedimentation rates. The sedimentation rate was based on the fact that it is a decay product of airborne Rn-220-> Po-218->Bi-214->Pb-210->Po-210 and that its parent Pb-210 is not in equilibrium with the Ra-226 in the sediments.
