Title: Practical program for the production of medical radio-nuclides with a 200-MeV proton linac. [Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer (BLIP)]

Abstract

The Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer, or BLIP, is a practical facility for the economical production of significant quantities of medically useful isotopes that would not otherwise be available. The purpose of the BLIP is to utilize the excess capacity of an existing 200-MeV proton linear accelerator to produce relatively large amounts of radionuclides for medical applications and to evaluate the utility of spallation reactions induced by accelerators as a practical source of such isotopes. The scope of the program is briefly discussed, the types of problems encountered are mentioned, and some of the experience gained in the past several years is outlined.
