Abstract

The production of 133Ba via the nuclear reac-133 133 tion Cs(p,n) 133Ba on targets of CsF and CsCl has been investigated. Two methods to quantitatively separate 133Ba from the Cs target material, using AG 50W-X4 and AG MP-50 cation exchange resins, respectively, have been developed. Measured thick-target yield values are presented and some characteristics of the underlying excitation function have been inferred. For this purpose, calculations using the Geometry Dependent Hybrid model, as implemented in the code ALICE-IPPE, have been performed. Aspects of the production targetry developed as part of this study are also discussed.
