Intermetallic cobalt-gallium targets for production of germanium radioisotopes

Appl Radiat Isot. 2022 May 28;187:110307. doi: 10.1016/j.apradiso.2022.110307. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIncreasing interest in targeted radionuclide therapy motivates the development of new radionuclides. The unique emission spectrum from 71Ge make it an ideal candidate for probing microdosimetric effects of low energy electrons absent confounding photon dose. This work reports a novel intermetallic target of Co and Ga for accelerator production of no-carrier-added 69/71Ge and a new method to isolate the Ge in high yields and purities.PMID:35696750 | DOI:10.1016/j.apradiso.2022.110307
