Target systems

 

Laboratory of Cyclotron has developed, often in collaboration with the Department of Radiopharmaceuticals, several solid, liquid and gas target systems,  some of them being relatively universal. Of them, we should mention two unique internal tangential solid target systems suitable for production of e.g. 64Cu, 67Ga, 111In, 201Tl and 211At, external tangential solid target system used for production of e.g. 124I and external perpendicular solid target system with 4π water cooling, universal niobium liquid target for routine production of 18F and for irradiation of solution targets used for pilot production of e.g. 68Ga and 86Y, and finally gas target systems used for routine production of 81Rb and also for production of 83Rb and 123I. Production of low activities of calibration radionuclides and tracers can be also performed on the external solid target system used for measurements of excitation functions.

 

Carefully calibrated gamma spectrometers equipped with HPGe detectors located in the cyclotron building can be used for rapid measurement of short-lived activities induced in the targets.
