Abstract : The alloy in In-Ga is activated by the leakage neutrons in the activity generator which is a horizontal container, which overlaps one of the sides of the reactor, and which gives off gamma radiation energy in the irradiator located in the cell; this cell is shielded from the neutron radiation of the reactor. The circulation of the alloy in the system 'activity generator-irradiator' is assured by an electromagnetic pump which, as we know, does not disturb the air-tightness of the system. The indium-gallium eutectic alloy in our case is the most suitable gamma carrier.
