deu·te·ri·um

 (do͞o-tîr′ē-əm, dyo͞o-)
n.
A naturally occurring isotope of hydrogen, H-2, having one proton and one neutron in the nucleus.

deuterium

(djuːˈtɪərɪəm)
n
(Elements & Compounds) a stable isotope of hydrogen, occurring in natural hydrogen (156 parts per million) and in heavy water: used as a tracer in chemistry and biology. Symbol: D or 2H; atomic no: 1; atomic wt: 2.014; boiling pt: –249.7°C
[C20: New Latin; see deutero-, -ium; from the fact that it is the second heaviest hydrogen isotope]

deu•te•ri•um

(duˈtɪər i əm, dyu-)

n.
an isotope of hydrogen, having twice the mass of ordinary hydrogen; heavy hydrogen. Symbol: D; at. wt.: 2.01; at. no.: 1.

deu·te·ri·um

(do͞o-tîr′ē-əm)
An isotope of hydrogen whose nucleus has one proton and one neutron and whose atomic mass is 2. Deuterium is used widely as a tracer for analyzing chemical reactions, and it combines with oxygen to form heavy water. Also called heavy hydrogen. See more at hydrogen. See Note at heavy water.

deuterium

An isotope of hydrogen. Its nucleus contains one proton and one neutron and has a relative atomic mass of two.

For this state, superconductivity for electrons and protons (Fermi-liquids) is expected in hydrogen, and superconductivity for electrons and superfluidity for deutrons in deuterium (an isotope of hydrogen).
To get targets with polarized protons, deutrons or heavier nuclei, solid high molecular compounds admixed with paramagnetic centers (quasi-free electrons) which are chemically doped or created by external irradiation, are mostly used.
