Abstract

Excitation functions and yields for the 181-186Rera dionuclides were measured by the activation method on natural tungsten foils for the proton energies up to 17 MeV . A new data sets have been given for the investigated radionuclides. These results are compared both with the experimental literature values and the ones calculated by 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 tumours.
