Abstract

Charged-particle cross section database for medical radioisotope production was developed under an international project coordinated by the IAEA. The project focused on radioisotopes for diagnostic purposes and on the related beam monitor reactions. The database contains activation cross-sections of reactions induced by light charged particles with energies mostly up to about 40 MeV. It includes 22 beam monitor reactions for protons (8), deuterons (5), 3He (3) and α-particles (6), and 26 reactions for most commonly used γ-emitters (12), their serious isotopic impurities (4) and β+-emitters (10).
