This effort will identify sources and production methods for isomeric materials. Isomeric targets will be built and characterized for experiments and potential application studies. Isomers will include Hf-178m2 and other isomers of similar characteristicsfavorable to triggered energy release by x-ray irradiation. Experiments will include spectroscopic analysis, x-ray irradiation effects, and other energy-time resolved decay measurements to determine reaction cross-sections, trigger energies, triggereddecay cascade transitions, and isomer production reaction characteristics. Provides a source of long-lived isomer targets developed for specific triggering experimental protocols. Will provide scientific data to allow development of triggered isomer-based applications including medical oncology, industrial radiography, foodsterilization, neutralization of biohazards including military weapons of mass destruction.
