A 7Be ion beam of several particle pA at 8 MeV has been produced at the TTT3 tandem of the University "Federico II" in Naples. The 7Be nuclides were formed via the 7Li(p,n)7Be reaction using a metallic Li target and an 11.4 MeV proton beam of 20 μA intensity, delivered by the cyclotron in Debrecen. Methods of hot chemistry were used to extract the 7Be nuclides from the Li matrix and to prepare the 7Be cathodes for the ion sputter source of the tandem. Examples of 7Be beam applications are given.
