Paper Abstract

AVLIS process for Yb has been studied theoretically and experimentally. Installations to produce highly enriched 168Yb in industrial scales were created. The contents of 168Yb in the laser produced plasma was reached 90 - 95 %, in the material deposited on the ions collector - up to 62 % and in the washing liquid - up to 45 %. The rate of the enriched yterrbium production was up to 5-10 mg/hour (over 1 g per month). For the first time a profitable commodity was produced by the AVLIS method. Using the selective two-stage ionization and Zeeman effect the essential enrichment of various isotopes of a palladium is reached: 102Pd - up to 18 % (on a comparison with the natural contents 1 %), 104Pd - up to 70 % (on a comparison - 11.4%), 105Pd - up to 60 % (on a comparison - 22.33%).
