Oxygen 18 enriched water targets are bombarded with 10.5 MeV protons to produce Fluorine 18 in cyclotron targets manufactured by CTI, inc. A thermal model of the target and target holder is developed that allows the relationship between the beam power applied to the target and the vapor volume produced in the target to be predicted. The model is compared with data on vapor volume production during bombardment for a range of beam power. The data agree well with predictions from the thermal model… CONTINUE READING
