In the frame of the R&D program for the SPES project of the Legnaro Laboratories, the production yields of Rb, In and Cs isotopes have bean measured at the synchrocyclotron of the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (PNPI) of Gatchina (Russia). Production yields for direct proton fission and neutron-induced fission on a high-density UC2 powder target are compared. The overall efficiencies as a function of the target temperature have been measured.
