67Cu and 47Sc are theranostic radionuclides in the spot-light of the scientific community: the insufficient availability is limiting their use in clinical and preclinical studies. The aim of this work is the analysis of 67Cu and 47Sc production by using high-energy and high-intensity cyclotrons, by exploring promising nuclear reactions induced by proton-beams. In this work are presented the first measurement in the energy range 45-70 MeV of the 70Zn(p,x)67Cu, 64Cu, 67Ga, 66Ga nuclear cross sections (outcome of the COME project), and the preliminary results of the natV(p,x)47Sc, 46Sc, 44mSc, 44Sc, 48Sc, 43Sc nuclear cross sections, investigated in the on-going PASTA project.

Abstract

67Cu and 47Sc are theranostic radionuclides in the spot-light of the scientific community: the insufficient availability is limiting their use in clinical and preclinical studies. The aim of this work is the analysis of 67Cu and 47Sc production by using high-energy and high-intensity cyclotrons, by exploring promising nuclear reactions induced by proton-beams. In this work are presented the first measurement in the energy range 45-70 MeV of the 70Zn(p,x)67Cu, 64Cu, 67Ga, 66Ga nuclear cross sections (outcome of the COME project), and the preliminary results of the natV(p,x)47Sc, 46Sc, 44mSc, 44Sc, 48Sc, 43Sc nuclear cross sections, investigated in the on-going PASTA project.
