Abstract

Excitation functions, thin- and thick-target yields (tty and TTY) for the 181-186Re radionuclides were measured with the activation method on stacked natural W foils for proton energies up to 22 MeV. Besides, TTYs obtained irradiating highly enriched tungsten targets are presented. In conclusion, a new data set has been given for the investigated radionuclides. These results are compared both with the experimental literature values and the ones calculated by the EMPIRE II code (version 2.19). In particular, the attention is focused on Re-186g due to its remarkable applications in Nuclear Medicine for metabolic radiotherapy of tumors. Finally these results are compared with some preliminary data obtained by deuteron cyclotron irradiation on thin natural W foils.
