Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "*'half life'*" to get these possible sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life

http://www.colorado.edu/physics/2000/isotopes/radioactive_decay3.html

In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
