Abstract: Lommel's function $ s_{\mu ,\nu }(z)$ is a particular solution of the differential equation $ z^{2}y'' + zy' + (z^{2}-\nu ^{2})y = z^{\mu +1}$. Here we present estimates and monotonicity properties of the positive zeros of $ s_{\mu -1/2,1/2}(z)$ when $ \mu \in (0,1)$. The positivity of a closely related integral is also considered.
