The main stream of our study about the target is increasing the lifetime of the target windows. Mainly we conduct our study to increase the cooling performance and secondly about the structural design of the targets and target window foils. We already had developed and had published the results of our research about O-18 doublegrid water target, which had installed on our 13 MeV cyclotron KIRAMS-13. The beam size of the accelerated proton was 9 □×18 □ (0.35 in×0.7 in). The double-grid target shows relatively low pressure during irradiation and good yield of F-18. The average yield of F-18 after irradiation was more than 1 Ci at 12.5 MeV, around 26 μA. Additionally, we are conducting new research for new techniques to increase the performance of low energy double-grid target and a new state-of-the-art pleated double foil target.
