This work presents the recoil and secondary implantation of radioisotopes at different bombarding energies in the range of ~ 13 to ~ 40 MeV by using an α-particle beam of 50 MeV irradiating a stack of Ag, Ni and Ti metal foils. Activation cross-sections for the produce radioisotopes were calculated and confronted with literature data. The implanted activity is presented as a function of the primary beam energy for six produced radioisotopes 57Ni, 57Co, 65Zn, 51Cr, 48V and 46Sc. The use of each of these radioisotopes in engineering experiments based on the nano-thin layer activation is discussed.
