Abstract:

A cross section database on excitation functions of reactions produced by charged particles is essential for many areas of nuclear research. Particularly, accurate knowledge on nuclear cross sections for the cyclotron production of radioisotopes is very important for nuclear medicine. In the present paper, the cross section calculations for the production of 43,44 Sc, 45 Ti, 51 Cr, 54 Mn, and 55Fe radioisotopes were carried out by the use of ALICE/ ASH code using the Fermi gas model, Kataria Ramamurthy Fermi gas model, and superfluid nuclear model for nuclear level density. Thereby, these model calculations were compared with the available measured data.
