Isotope production comparison at ISOLDE with 1 and 1.4 GeV protons
Paper i proceeding, 2002
The difference in isotope production between 1 and 1.4 GeV proton projectiles was investigated at ISOLDE/CERN during the year 1999. As target materials uranium carbide, thorium carbide, lead and lanthanum oxide were used and the ratio of the measured production yields for the two different projectile energies were determined for isotopes of the elements francium, mercury, thallium, xenon, cesium, krypton, rubidium and neon. A comparison of these experimental results with the predictions from a two-step reaction model Monte-Carlo code shows good agreement. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
