Excitation functions were measured for natKr(3He, xn)82,83,85Sr and natKr(3He, pxn)83,84,86Rb reactions over the energy range 20-92 MeV, and for natKr(α, xn)82,83,85Sr and natKr(α, pxn)83,84,86Rb processes from 20 to 120 MeV. Thick target yields of 82,83,85Sr were calculated. At a given incident energy, the 3He-particle induced process gives a higher 82Sr-yield than the α-particle process. For E3He = 90→20 MeV the expected 82Sr-yield is 35 μCi (1290 kBq)/μAh and the 85Sr/82Sr ratio is 0.35. For Eα = 120→20 MeV the calculated yield of 82Sr amounts to 52 μCi (1920 kBq)/μAh and the 85Sr/82Sr ratio is 1.24.
