Our latest technological developments: targets, ion sources and isotope separation techniques for the production of medical radionuclides

Target design and target materials characterisation, ion sources, and isotope separation techniques are all fundamental aspects for the efficient production of medical radionuclides.

In the framework of the PRISMAP consortium many different R&D activities are ongoing and in the context of this public event the main results are accurately presented and discussed.

This event was organised in hybrid format in Legnaro (Padova, Italy) and remotely.
