Abstract

A preparation method for gadolinium targets with a thickness up to 4 mg/cm2 on aluminum supports from aqueous electrolytes was developed. These electrodeposited adhesive and mechanically stable natGd layers were used to measure excitation functions of Gd + p nuclear reactions relevant to the production of medically important 152Tb (PET) and 155Tb (SPECT) radioisotopes.
