The SPES project (Selective Production of Exotic Species) is a second-generation ISOL facility under construction at the LNL. The aim is the production of radioactive ion beams on the neutron rich side of the nuclide chart for nuclear structure and reaction studies, astrophysics research and interdisciplinary applications. The heart of the facility is the multi-foil UCx target where the...

Chemically inert coatings on Havar® entrance foils of the liquid cyclotron targets for Fluorine-18 production are needed to decrease the amount of ionic contaminants released from Havar®. For efficient corrosion protection, both chemical inertness and microstructure of the coating are important. The corrosion damage of coated entrance foils is caused mainly by the diffusion of highly reactive...

To increase the production yield of radioisotope of medical interest, elevated particle currents are required. This is associated with elevated thermal power that should be dissipated by appropriate cooling system. The conventional solid cyclotron target for medical radioisotope production is cooled with circulating water from the back and helium gas turbulent flow from the front (optional)....
