Abstract: Investigations allowing obtaining of 82Sr isotope upon irradiation of target RbCl by internal proton beam in the cyclotron U-240 were performed. The facility, providing long exposure of the target RbCl upon internal proton beam with the intensity of 150 mA and with energy not less than 70 MeV, was constructed.

Keywords: 82Sr, target, cyclotron U-240, proton beam.
