In this work alternative methods for the production of terbium isotopes, and in particular 152Tb and 155Tb, have been investigated. These isotopes, which could be used for theragnostics, have been produced using an alpha and a proton beam incident on europium and gadolinium targets, respectively. The experimental results have been compared with the predicted cross-sections, calculated using TALYS and PACE4 code.
