isotope production

The Isotope Production Facility (IPF) uses a 100-MeV proton beam extracted from the main LANSCE accelerator to produce isotopes for application in the fields of medicine, fundamental nuclear physics, national security, environmental science, and industrial applications.

IPF supplies a variety of radioisotopes to medical researchers and other scientists all over the world and is a leader in developing and producing new, and unique isotopes for international research and development.

The Isotope Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Isotope Program, managed by the Office of Science for Isotope R&D and Production.
