Young stellar objects are observed to have large X-ray fluxes and are thought to produce commensurate luminosities in energetic particles (cosmic rays). This particle radiation, in turn, can synthesize short-lived radioactive nuclei through spallation. With a focus on 26Al, this paper estimates the expected abundances of radioactive nuclei produced by spallation during the epoch of planet formation. In this model, cosmic rays are accelerated near the inner truncation radii of circumstellar… Expand
