Although most isotopes of Cesium are radioactive to some degree (Cesium-133 is stable), none of the isotopes have any weapons applications. It is used as a radiation source in laboratories, in the petroleum industry, electronic devices and, perhaps most famously, in atomic clocks (the oscillation period of the cesium-133 atom is now used to define the standard second). Cesium clocks also regulate timing for cell phone networks and internet data flow. See more
