A method to produce solid metal targets capable of withstanding proton irradiation with a power density of up to 1.1 kW/cm2 has been developed. The method of choice involves the electrodeposition of enriched powder onto a tantalum backing, followed by high-temperature sintering in order to afford a coating that is sufficient to withstand bombardment for extended periods of time, yet reactive enough to allow for oxidative dissolution in seconds. This method is amenable to high-throughput techniques to allow for the production of via the reaction on small medical cyclotrons.
