Abstract

The excitation function up to 30 MeV was remeasured by the activation method for the production of 186Re via the 186W(p,n) reaction. The available experimental data were analyzed, corrected and compared with the calculated results of the ALICE-IPPE, GNASH and EMPIRE theoretical model codes. The experimental data set has still to be improved before reliable recommended values for optimization of batch production can be proposed.
