Article

The activation method was used to determine the cross sections of the nuclear reactions 82Kr(3He, 3n)82Sr, 83Kr(3He, 4n)82Sr, and 84Kr(3He, 5n)82Sr in the 3He energy range 20–75 MeV on targets with highly enriched krypton isotopes. The results were used to calculate the 82Sr yield in a yield-optimized cascade target with 82,83,84Kr and initial 3He energy 75 MeV. The computed 82Sr yield was equal to 2.9 MBq/(μA·h), which makes it possible to count on the practical application of the method of 82Sr production based on the reactions 82,83,84Kr(3He, xn)82Sr in a cascade target.
