An intense beam of26gAl has been developed for accelerated beam experiments at TRIUMF's ISAC facility. Studies of the on-line production of Al radionuclides from thick silicon carbide targets have been performed as part of a program of beam development for astrophysical reaction studies at ISAC. While the release of short-lived Al nuclides from SiC was found to be slow, development of new target material forms and high-power target containers has allowed operation of SiC targets with proton currents of up to 70 μA on target. In addition, operation with the TRIUMF resonant ionization laser ion source (TRILIS) has produced26gAl beam intensities of 5.1 × 1010s-1. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
