Abstract:

A primary goal of the Department of Energys Isotope Development and Production for Research and Applications Program (Isotope Program) within the Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) is to produce isotopes that are in short supply in the U.S. and of which there exists no or insufficient domestic commercial production capability. Isotopes in short supply are the heaviest isotopes of germanium, selenium and tellurium. Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation is going to demonstrate a method to increase the enrichment of an ionized isotope stream by increasing the number of separation stages from one to many. In Phase I, AASC will demonstrate a method to increase the separation power of plasma based isotope separation technology using a staged scheme. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The purpose of this program is to provide a viable alternative to foreign sources of enriched isotopes for medicine and research as well as demonstrate short turn around, domestic production of enriched isotopes, which cannot be done by foreign vendors.
