This more protracted release of the energy.
stored in samples of the Hf-178m2
nuclear isomers encourages researchers to
consider the potential of mechanical and thermal applications.

It's reasonably stable nuclear isomer (with a half-life of 31 years) is 178m2
72Hf, which has the highest excitation energy of any comparably long-lived isomer. One gram of pure 178m2Hf contains approximately 1.33 gigajoules of energy, the equivalent of exploding about 315 kg (690 lb) of TNT. Further, in the natural decay of 178m2Hf, the energy is released as gamma rays with a total energy of 2.45 MeV.

A nuclear isomer is a metastable state of an atomic nucleus caused by the excitation of one or more of its nucleons (protons or neutrons). "Metastable" refers to the fact that these excited states have half-lives more than 100 to 1000 times the half-lives of the other possible excited nuclear states (which ordinarily last on the order of 1012 seconds). As a result, the term "metastable" is usually restricted to refer to isomers with half-lives of 109 seconds or longer.
