Abstract

Theoretical calculations of the excitation functions for the reaction 67Zn(p,n)67Ga on natural and enriched zinc targets in the energy range from threshold up to 18 MeV are carried out using nuclear reaction models from program packages EMPIRE-3 and TALYS 1.4. The results are compared with those available from experimental data. The yields of gallium isotopes produced in the reaction 67Zn(p,n)67Ga on the cyclotron C18, IBA Belgium with proton energy 18 MeV are evaluated. Our calculations indicate that the yield of 67Ga production in case of natural and enriched zinc targets are expected to be 23.6 MBq/μAh and 139 MBq/μAh, respectively.
