Excitation functions of proton induced nuclear reactions on natRb were investigated from 30 to 70 MeV. Cross-sections and integral production yields were measured as a function of the proton energy. The standardization of the nuclear data for production of a 82Sr(82Rb) generator system and of 83Sr radioisotope, their production possibilities, and the impurity levels were discussed.
