Medium and High Energy Production of Isotopes

Session Organizers:
Boris Zhuikov, Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Laboratory of Radioisotope Complex, Russia
F. Meiring Nortier, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Chemistry Division, USA

This session will cover recent developments in methodology for accelerator/cyclotron production of isotopes at higher energies. Topic areas will include new isotope developments, production challenges and improvements, accelerator developments, medium and higher energy target design challenges, high power targetry, target chemistry challenges as well as economics and availability.
