Abstract: Experimentally measured cross-sections are presented for the first time for the 192Os(p,α3n)186Re nuclear reaction up to 67 MeV. Highly enriched thin 192Os targets (15 pcs), prepared by electro-deposition onto Cu backings, were irradiated with an external proton beam delivered by the SSC cyclotron of iThemba LABS. The excitation function curve of the 192Os(p,α3n)186Re reaction shows a maximum cross-section of ~82 mb at about 24 MeV. According to the yield calculations based on the present results, the available cumulative no-carrier-added 186Re yield is 7.76 MBq/μAh (0.21 mCi/μAh) over the energy region 13.4 → 27.3 MeV.
