A thoron is a radioactive isotope of radon, 220Rn, having a half-life of 54.5 seconds and produced by the decomposition of thorium. (citation needed • edit)Thoron fields can be employed in conjunction with duranium shadows to deceive sensors into registering fully functional weapons systems. (DS9: "Emissary", "The Way of the Warrior")
Thorons had some medical applications. (VOY: "Basics, Part II") When Captain Kathryn Janeway was injured by the crash of the Sacajawea in 2373, The Doctor tried a thoron pulse in attempting to repel a non-corporeal lifeform that had inhabited her cerebral cortex. (VOY: "Coda")
Some directed energy weapons are based on thorons, though they can be unstable. Most of Entharan arms dealer Kovin's handheld disruptors were thoron-based; he claimed he was able to compensate for the instability by polarizing the emitter matrix. (VOY: "Retrospect")
