Abstract

Excitation functions were measured by the activation method using stacked-foil technique for the natSr(p,xn)88,87m,g,86m,gY reactions up to 18 MeV. The experimental results were compared with the theoretical data from EMPIRE-3.2 code and TENDL. Integral yields of 88,87m,g,86m,gY were estimated based on the measured cross sections. The optimum energy range for the production of the important isotope 88Y is Ep = 16→11 MeV, 88Y yield amounts to about 3 MBq/µAh.
