Abstract

Target characteristics required to carry out reliable thermal neutron induced fission studies on "243"Am are discussed. Especially the problems caused by the ingrowth of "239"Pu in the material are examined, and purification of the "243"Am base material is studied. Targets prepared by electrospaying of americium acetate have been used and were verified in neutron physics experiments.
