Producing radioisotopes using electron accelerators

27 January 2017

In order to warrant long-term availability of these radioactive isotopes significant investments in new production facilities have to be made in the coming decade. KVI-CART contributes to the development of a new, innovative technology for the production of radioactive isotopes with electron accelerators in het Lighthouse project that recently has been awarded the National Innovation Icon status by the Dutch government.
