Production of intense radioactive beams at ISAC using low-energy protons

Academic Article


  • A proof-of-principle approach for the production of intense (∼10 8/s) radioactive ion beams, which differs from the standard ISOL (Isotope Separation On-Line) technique, has been demonstrated successfully using 11C at the TRIUMF laboratory. This approach uses 13 MeV protons produced by a medical cyclotron and should be useful for a range of radioisotopes of interest to the nuclear astrophysics research programme. © 2006 NRC Canada.
